Alhambra Valley Road Bridge ribbon cutting

Wednesday, November 15, 2017 - 2:30pm Alhambra Valley Rd & Castro Ranch Rd, Pinole

A new Alhamba Valley Road bridge over Pinole Creek will be inaugurated at a ceremony at 2:30 pm on November 15. Contra Costa County Supervisor John Gioia and county Public Works Department officials will officiate. The bridge replaces a 1930s-era culvert that was completely washed out during a January 2017 storm, cutting off access to the popular Three Bears bike route loop.

The new bridge opened to traffic on November 2, and includes shoulders five to eight feet wide for people biking or walking.
