Old Stanley Boulevard at First Street/Stanley Boulevard in Pleasanton will be closed on Monday, July 1 for street intersection improvements. Planned completion is August 1.
The housing development currently under construction along First Street, Meritage Homes - The Homestead at Irby Ranch, includes the extension of Nevada Street to First Street to create the fourth leg of the intersection at First Street/Old Stanley Boulevard/Stanley Boulevard. This part of the development project involves the realignment of the south end of Old Stanley Boulevard – between First Street/Stanley Boulevard and Promenade Way – so that it aligns with the new Nevada Street.
Throughout July, all Old Stanley Boulevard local traffic will gain access from Main Street, and all through traffic will be detoured around the closure, using either Ray Street or Valley Avenue depending on direction of travel. For example, motorists southbound on Main Street will be advised by signage that Old Stanley Boulevard is closed to through traffic, and will be detoured to Ray Street and on to First Street; motorists traveling northbound on Main Street will be detoured to Valley Avenue to Stanley Boulevard. On Monday, June 24, message boards were placed on Stanley Boulevard and Main Street alerting motorists to the upcoming closure.
The closure allows the work to be completed in four weeks, while school is not in session, to minimize traffic impacts. The schedule has been carefully organized to open Old Stanley Boulevard before school starts on August 12, so as not to overlap with the solar project PUSD has planned for the AVHS parking lot.
