Bollinger Canyon Road Widening

The Bollinger Canyon Road widening project is in full swing.

Bollinger Canyon Road is one of our main gateways to the Bridges, Gale Ranch, and Windemere Communities.

As your San Ramon Realtor and Broker at KernerHomes.com, people are constantly asking about the improvements on Bollinger Canyon.  I am also a local resident of San Ramon and have been wondering, “What’s going on? What are all these distractions on the road?”  Here is what I have uncovered.  The City of San Ramon says the roads are going to be expanded to handle, “…roadway capacity to accommodate the General Plan buildout.”  This includes the new City Center.

As we all know, having the extra lanes will be wonderful for more easily accessing our homes in San Ramon and Dougherty Valley.  In addition, it will help support the expected traffic visiting the new City Center that is planned to open later this year.  These upgrades should help alleviate congestion on the roads and get us home more quickly.  That is a great thing.  If you are considering moving to San Ramon, learn more about what our amazing community has to offer by going to San Ramon Community Details.
