3/26/2015  Caltrans will resume its Highway 9 safety improvement project on Monday, March 30. The final location of this project is centered between Hakone Gardens and Ambric Knolls Road in Saratoga.

Most of the work will be performed on weekdays from 6:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. However, some weekend and night work is possible.

A concrete barrier will narrow this section from two lanes to one lane. Caltrans will utilize a 24-hour traffic signal to help motorists and bicyclists safely navigate from both directions of one-lane traffic control. The project is scheduled to be completed in late 2015.
