Construction on First Street in Downtown Los Altos calls for road and lane closures over the next few weeks

As a result of the progress of the private developments on First Street, there will be several street and lane closures on First Street over the next five weeks. This activity is being scheduled, as much as possible, to limit inconvenience to businesses and customers from Thanksgiving through New Year’s. 

Each developer has submitted a traffic control plan that allows for traffic to flow through the downtown. City staff has carefully reviewed the requests so no two closures will occur at the same time. The closures will be set up each morning and removed at the end of the work day. The current schedule may change due to unforeseen circumstances such as bad weather. A summary of how the closures are being handled is noted below along with the currently scheduled dates.

400 Main Street Project
Street closure for this project will be on First Street between State Street and Parking Plaza Central.  Access to the Parking Plaza from the Main Street-side will not be blocked.

Scheduled street closure dates:

  • Saturday, November 23
  • Monday, November 25
  • Tuesday, December 10


Safeway Project
Street closure for this project will be on First Street between State Street and Plaza North. Access to the Parking Plaza from the W. Edith direction will not be blocked. The Safeway project lane closure will be on First Street in the central portion of the Safeway parcel. This location is where the street widens and through traffic on First Street will be allowed.

Scheduled closure dates:

  • Street closure: Monday, November 18 – Friday, November 22
  • Lane closure: Wednesday, December 18 – Thursday, December 19


100 First Street Condominium Project
Lane closures will occur on First Street in front of the project parcel. Flagmen will enable through-traffic to proceed on First Street.

Scheduled lane closure dates:

  • Monday, December 2
  • Wednesday, December 11
  • Tuesday, December 17


235 First Street
Street closure for this project will be on First Street between State Street and Parking Plaza Central.  Access to the Parking Plaza from the Main Street-side will not be blocked.  This closure will allow a new retail store, Land of Nod, to move into this location.  

Scheduled street closure:

  • The street closure is permitted for a three-hour period on Tuesday, December 3, and will occur in the early morning hours or in the evening hours so as not to conflict with the other construction traffic on First Street.
