Traffic delays on Marshland Road in Fremont this fall 2017

A 0.4-mile stretch of Marshlands Rd. from Thornton Ave. to the first parking lot is undergoing construction beginning September 1, 2017 and is expected to end February 1, 2018.

The bridge that crosses over the slough is to be replaced with one that meets earthquake safety standards.

To minimize disturbance to endangered species habitat, a short section of the road will be reduced to one lane with traffic controls. Expect delays when leaving and entering the refuge.

The Harrier Spur Trail and the LaRiviere Marsh Trailhead that connects to Marshlands Rd. will be closed during this time.
