COLEMAN AVENUE ON-RAMP TO ROUTE 87 CLOSES FRIDAY NIGHT

San JoseóThis Friday, February 16 at 10 PM, construction crews will permanently close the Coleman Avenue on-ramp to northbound 87. The Coleman Avenue off-ramp was closed last year. Motorists may use the Julian Street ramps for access between Route 87 and downtown San Jose.

This closure is the next stage in construction of the Taylor Street interchange as part of the Route 87 Freeway Improvement Project. Crews will begin building a frontage road in the location of the former Coleman Avenue on-ramp that will connect up to Hedding Street in the Civic Center.

Taylor Street is scheduled to re-open across Guadalupe River the end of this year.
