Saratoga Safety Fair
Meet with representatives of Saratoga's public safety organizations during the Saratoga Safety Fair on Saturday, June 24 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in the Saratoga Senior Center at 19655 Allendale Avenue. Attendees will have the chance to discuss important topics with safety experts, like crime prevention and wildfire preparedness. No registration is required.
State Route 9 Closure
Beginning Thursday, June 22, at 9:00 p.m., the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will fully close State Route 9 (SR-9)/Big Basin Way at San Sanborn Road to begin the installation of a temporary bridge for the Saratoga Creek Bridge Rehabilitation project. SR-9 will reopen on Monday, June 26, at 7:00 a.m.
The closure is needed to safely install a temporary bridge adjacent to the existing Saratoga Creek Bridge. The temporary bridge will allow SR-9 to remain open during the rehabilitation. This road closure is taking place now to keep pace with an accelerated schedule to complete the overall project by the end of the year and reduce the duration of impact to traffic and the community.
