Costco, college, Cornerstone Fellowship traffic alert: Airway Blvd. to close tomorrow

Motorists to be diverted onto Kitty Hawk Road as Isabel interchange project moves forward

Starting today, Airway Boulevard will no longer connect to Isabel Avenue with through traffic from I-580 and north of the freeway to be routed onto Kitty Hawk Road in Livermore.

The move, which is deisgned to allow for continued construction of the new Isabel Avenue/I-580 interchange, will have an immediate impact on motorists traveling to Costco, Cornerstown Fellowship and Las Positas Collecge.

Traffic using Airway Boulevard to reach the Livermore Airport, golf course and local businesses will still have access, but the roadway will no longer connect to Isabel.

In a notice sent by Cindy Mahler, a senior clerk in the city of Livermore engineeering department, construction representatives said the closing Airway Boulevard to through traffic should result in an earlier completion of the interchange project, currently scheduled for by finished next spring.

For information on the Isabel Avenue Interchange project, call Roberto Escobar at 960-4500 or visit the city of Livermore website at

Hi--Thanks for the update--however--sure would have been nice if you included a map of the area--and also what options for travel are suggested. at least a link to the area on mapquest would have given us something to work with.

I agree. Go a little further in your report and let us know the alternate routes.

I agree with Mary. Can you tell us how to get to Costco now from Pleasanton other than going on the freeway? Or maybe it's not possible now.

What does this mean for Pleasanton citizens who are traveling east on 580 to reach these places north of the interstate? How do we get there now?

Follow the link in the actual article to the City of Livermore site. There is a link to a map with details.

From the link:

"Effective August 4, Airway Boulevard will be closed to through traffic. Traffic to State Route 84 will be detoured to Kitty Hawk Road."

Sounds like this is only a minor change to the current arrangement, which has northbound traffic on SR 84 (Isabel) routed onto Kitty Hawk instead of Airway. Now southbound traffic will get the same routing.

The map says the local businesses on Airway remain open, only through traffic is blocked.

No difference in getting to the Costco side of 580.

In fact there is no difference from what it has been for the last couple of months.

This traffic notice is out of date!

There is a slight change. Going back to Livermore on airport blvd is no longer an option. Going over the freeway and turning left at Kittyhawk, is now the way to go. Nothing else has really changed. To get to the airport or businesses coming from Livermore, you will have to take Kittyhawk to airport blvd. Now to be treated as a dead end road. Coming from freeway to Costo or the Church and other businesses, you get off the freeway as always. No change.
