San Pablo Vertical Aerial RenderingThe northbound lane on San Pablo Avenue will be closed between Highway 111 and Royal Palm Drive. The east side of the San Pablo/San Gorgonio intersection will also be closed including San Gorgonio between San Pablo and San Rafael. The closures are scheduled to begin this Monday, February 3, and continue through this April. 

One-way traffic will be open southbound between Highway 111 and Royal Palm.

Beginning Monday, new center median parking spaces will be available for convenient parking in support of area businesses.

The temporary move to one-way traffic on a portion of San Pablo is intended to expedite construction and ensure that the improvement project is completed this May. 

Delays are possible and motorists are encouraged to allow extra time or use alternate routes such as Portola Avenue, Royal Palm Avenue, or San Luis Rey Avenue.

For more information, please visit, call 844-329-5999, or text SAN PABLO to 22828 to sign up for updates.
