The 101/Castillo St. Underpass is involved in a major Caltrans construction project which impacts routes and travel times, particularly along Castillo St. approaching the SBCGS driveway entrance. Travel via Off-ramps and On-ramps serving the Castillo St Underpass are subject to closures and most definitely delays throughout the project’s duration.

The gated entry onto SBCGS property will be open ±20-30 minutes before SBAUG’s event begins. There is ample parking behind the buildings on the site—SBCGS requests that attendees to SBAUG’s event do not park in spaces designated with signs as “tenant” parking. There is a short walk from parking to the designated entrance for the SBAUG event. Look for and follow the SBAUG Logo Signs.
