Press release from the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority and the city of Fremont:

Kato Road in southern Fremont will be opened to automobile and pedestrian traffic on April 1.

Ending several months of closure, one lane of traffic in each direction will be allowed on Kato between Warm Springs Boulevard and Milmont Drive.

A complete roadway opening is expected by May; project completion is expected early this summer.

The construction at Kato Road is the first of 11 grade separations needed to complete the BART Silicon Valley Berryessa Extension Project. Kato Road now passes underneath the Union Pacific railroad tracks and future BART tracks and includes new elevated sidewalks for pedestrians.

Bicycles will have a permanent bike lane once the completed roadway is opened.

Traffic that had been detoured onto Dixon Landing Road in Milpitas is expected to return to Kato Road, relieving some of the congestion on Dixon Landing and Warm Springs Boulevard.
