MC CARTHY BLVD OFF-RAMP DETOUR NEXT WEEK

The McCarthy Boulevard off-ramp from the southbound Interstate 880/westbound 237 connector will be closed each weekday next week in order to remove falsework and complete bridge preparations for the new freeway connector. Motorists accessing McCarthy Boulevard may use the next exit to Ranch Drive/McCarthy Boulevard from westbound Route 237.

The off-ramp will close each day from 9 AM until 4 PM beginning Monday, April 30 through Friday, May 4. All work is subject to good weather conditions.

The connector being constructed as part of the 237/880 interchange improvement project will create a direct connection for motorists traveling on southbound 880 to westbound 237. Itís scheduled to open in early summer 2001.

The 237/880 interchange improvement project is scheduled to be completed around May 2002.
