Construction Starts On Meadow Lane/Market Street Paving Project In Concord – Expected To Last Five Months


The City of Concord Meadow Lane/Market Street Paving Project was authorized to begin construction this week.

The project will involve pavement rehabilitation on Meadow Lane from Monument Boulevard to Market Street, and on Market Street from Meadow Lane to Willow Pass Road.

Work will also include conduit/fiber installation, curb ramp upgrades, rectangular rapid-flashing beacon (RRFB) installations, speed radar installations, traffic striping and marking updates, and traffic signal equipment upgrades at various intersections.


The project is anticipated to be complete by October 2023, weather permitting.

Concord needs to rebuild more heavily traveled roads such as:
Full length of Monument/Galindo/Concord Blvd.
Concord portion of YVR
Just about every street in the city

Finally, only about a decade behind… next should be Treat Bl.

YVR portion in WC too – San Miguel to the city line at the top of the hill

Exit 12A May 31, 2023 - 3:44 PM - 3:44 PM

“Just about every street…”?
Get real.
Concur with your point about arterials and major collector streets.
Concord Av between I-680 and CA-242 please!!!

I swear, paved public roads are first step to full-blown communism. It’s practically the gateway drug for pinkos

I’ve avoided Meadow Lane area for the last 30 years. Before that it wasn’t all that “bad”, but still really never went thru it. We knew the area was gonna go South soon.

Concord, the only place you can get seasick by driving down the street.

Concur. My car’s relatively stiff suspension, wheelbase, in combination with its speed on Concord Av sometimes results in “porpoising”. I usually slow down to avoid the resulting harmonic.

How does that road take 5 months to pave?


Exit 12A June 1, 2023 - 10:16 AM - 10:16 AM

It’s not just “repaving” the roadway… it also includes detector loops, sidewalk ramps, traffic signal and pedestrian light wiring, pavement markings, reflectors, etc. etc.
And depending on what “rehab” means, it may also involve recomplete rebuilding of the street section. Meaning, down to the dirt with new aggregate, compacting, then the actual asphalt itself.

Oh Yay May 31, 2023 - 8:25 PM - 8:25 PM

OH YAY!!!!
I’ve been praying for that to happen for over a year! Those roads are so terrible they are messing up my car and tires! I absolutely can’t wait for them to fix all of those horrible problems on Meadow Lane and Market!! Praise God for answered prayers!!

Just hope they don’t ruin it like they did at Galindo, cowell, and monument intersection. Getting rid of the right turn lane from cowell to Galindo was a huge mistake. Now there’s so much traffic.

Why would it take five months? The phantom pavers seem to surprisingly pave the freeway (at Treat/truck scales and around) seemingly over night and never see any trace of construction. Makes you think….
could explain why it takes forever to do anything in Concord.

Don’t worry they’ll dig it up a week after completion!

You know Mary Poppins had her ways.

Don’t they mean 5 YEARS??
And 20 million over budget?
Have they ever done anything with Willow Pass between Farm Bureau and Landana? I haven’t been on it for a few years. It was like a FREAKING WASHBOARD!
