Dublin Boulevard Construction Projects

Project Overview


The City of Dublin has had longtime plans to widen a stretch of Dublin Boulevard (between Dublin Court and Sierra Lane) from two lanes to three. This stretch of older road is the last remaining stretch of Dublin Boulevard that needs to be widened and upgraded with underground utilities.

There are three phases of construction, which began in mid-June 2017:

  • Phase 1A - Dublin San Ramon Services District (DSRSD) relocated a sewer lift station situated near Murco Plaza. For more detailed information on this phase of the project, please visit www.dsrsd.com/sewer-liftCompleted.
  • Phase 1B - PG&E and other agencies relocated utilities to underground.  Completed.  
  • Phase 2 - The widening of Dublin Boulevard will include expanding the road from two to three lanes of traffic; construction of Class 2 bike lanes and upgrading traffic signals for bicyclist detection; asphalt surfacing; streetscape improvements; and installation of new median islands, curb and gutters, landscaping, and driveway and sidewalk for better accessibility. (August 2018 - Summer 2019)

The Dublin Boulevard widening project will also involve reconstructing the driveway to and from Civic Plaza beginning    April 15. The schedule is subject to weather interruptions.

How This Might Affect Your Commute

Due to the high-traffic volumes on Dublin Boulevard, the work will be scheduled during the nighttime hours, 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.,  to minimize impacts.  During each phase of the work, one lane of traffic may be closed in each direction.  No closures of Dublin Boulevard are expected.
