Enforcement of turn restrictions in Willows neighborhood begins

The following turn restrictions were placed within the Willows neighborhood on December 19, 2017:

• No right turns from Chester, Durham & O’Keefe to Willow Road, 3-7 p.m. weekdays (Except SamTrans and school buses)
• No left turns from Woodland to Baywood, 3-7 p.m. weekdays

These restrictions are in place to help ease the congestion within the Willows neighborhood due to the Willow-101 interchange construction. The Transportation Division received input from local residents that the changes have been effective in the reduction of cut through traffic in the neighborhood and the backup on and from Willow Rd. has shown improvements. Police will begin enforcing the turn restrictions beginning today, January 19, 2018.

City staff will continue to observe the traffic for any needed adjustments. Keep posted with the City’s project webpage at and Construction News Updates at
