3 Quick Items: Nighttime Roadwork…Levee Cleanup Saturday 8/27…Blood Drive Sunday 8/28

Please read these three quick informational notes.

1. HEADS UP to anyone who works or lives (or will drive) on or near E. Bayshore Road between Whipple and Bair Island Road: as part of the road improvements taking place on E. Bayshore Road, the contractor will be working overnight TONIGHT (Thursday) starting at 9 pm and continuing until 6 am Friday morning, to do the “overlay” during which a layer of new asphalt will be placed on top of the existing surface. While there will be traffic controls in place, cars will have access at all times. The area will be lighted, and there may be some noise. We apologize for any inconvenience, and appreciate the patience of anyone who is affected.

2. Annual Levee Cleanup at Redwood Shores – Saturday, August 27 from 8 am to noon, starting at Mariner Park, located at Tiller Lane/Bridge Parkway. Get outside, enjoy some of Redwood Shores’ beautiful summer weather, and help to clean up and beautify Redwood Shores’ levees for the benefit of all of Redwood City! Join dozens of volunteers to remove debris and trash from the levees. For non-Redwood Shores volunteers, it’s a great opportunity to learn about the beauty of the Redwood Shores levees, enjoy the sight of a variety of wildlife, and experience incredible views of the bay. Coffee, juice & bagels will be available at 8:30 am before assignments are doled out. After the cleanup, a free barbecue for the volunteers will be served at Mariner Park, as a small ‘thank you’ for helping to beautify and enhance this important Redwood City resource. Bring gloves and wear good work shoes… everything else will be provided.

3. A Blood Drive is scheduled for this Sunday, August 28, in the parking lot at the Redwood Shores Branch Library from noon to 4 pm. Please consider donating – did you know that one out of every three people will need a life-saving blood transfusion at some point? Schedule your appointment online at www.bloodheroes.com.  Click on “Donate Blood”, enter sponsor code:  RWSLibrary, or contact JoEllen at 650-652-4124 with any questions.
