The East Bay Regional Park District will CLOSE Pt. Isabel Regional Shoreline from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 27, for slurry-seal repair work on the paved trails.
No entry into the park will be allowed from either the Isabel Street side or the Rydin Road side. The Marina Bay-to-Point Isabel Trail from the bridge at Meeker Slough to the end of Rydin Road will be closed; there will be no access to North Point Isabel. The trail from the end of Central Avenue to Isabel Street will also be closed.
In addition, Mudpuppy’s Dog Wash and the Sit and Stay Café will be closed for the day.
The closure is to allow work crews to slurry seal the asphalt, which will help smooth out and protect the trail and reduce the need for replacement. The material is wet, very sticky, smelly and difficult to remove. We do not want people or dogs on it until it is completely dry. The project will take all day, including drying time.
North Point Isabel trails will not be slurry sealed. That area will be closed because the trails that lead to it are being slurry sealed and there will not be any way to access it. The asphalt there needs replacement, which is a bigger job and will be done at another time.
The project is being funded by Measure J, a half-cent sales tax that funds transportation projects in Contra Costa County. Trail improvements are also slated for Pinole Shores/Hercules and the Wildcat Creek Trail.
We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause, but closing the park for one day is the safest, most efficient and economical way to complete this project. We hope everyone, and their dogs, will understand and enjoy the improvement to this popular park.
