Zona Cultural Streets Project Update

Revised Road Closure - Santa Rosa (Cesar Chavez to Dolorosa) and Nueva Intersection

Starting as early as Monday, March 18, 2024 through July 2024, the contractor will close the westside (southbound lanes) of Santa Rosa from the Cesar Chavez intersection to the Dolorosa intersection. This is in addition to the current closure of the eastside (northbound) between Cesar Chavez and Dolorosa, which will constitute a full roadway closure of Santa Rosa between Cesar Chavez and Nueva. This closure will include east side of the Santa Rosa & Nueva intersection for reconstruction work. Temporarily northbound Santa Rosa traffic at Nueva will be permitted to Dolorosa. Immediately following closures, all efforts will be focused on the completion of the intersection of Santa Rosa & Nueva in order to restore one lane of east and westbound traffic by May 26, 2024. This closure is necessary to expedite the completion of the project. Public Works Department has coordinated this closure with the Council Office, area businesses, residents, and stakeholders. Access to Public Safety Headquarters, Bill Millers, Federal Building, and Washington Square building shall be provided at all times. For ease of reference, please see the map provided showing the closure and available detour routes.

Traffic impacts will be minimized as much as possible, however please plan for some delays and travel carefully through the work zone. Due to weather or unforeseen conditions the closure date may be extended. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience as construction progresses. Public Works will continue to communicate any changes as the project progresses.
