Project Limits: Concord Pavilion in the City of Concord to northern Hess Road intersection in Contra Costa County
Supervisory District: 4, 5
Thomas Brothers Map Reference: 593, H-4
The project will improve safety and reduce congestion along Kirker Pass Road by constructing a truck climbing lane in the northbound direction. The project is approximately 1 mile in length, beginning at the Concord Pavilion and ending at the northern Hess Road intersection. Pavement widening is proposed on the east side of the roadway to provide a 12-foot truck lane and 8-foot paved shoulder. Widening will require significant retaining walls due to the existing slopes and drainage adjacent to the roadway.
CEQA/NEPA approval received December 2016

Construction beginning in 2019
Proposed Funding: The County is seeking additional funding to complete the project.
