An announcement of construction from San Jose Museum of Quilts:
Dear Friends,

1stACT Silicon Valley and the City of San Jose are partnering with the SoFA District to transform Parque De Los Pobladores (aka Gore Park), which is directly in front of the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles. The park will be expanded to create an “outdoor living room” for the SoFA District. This project will not only enhance the park but provide our Museum with an outdoor space for future programming and events.

The project is scheduled to begin on July 11 and be completed by September 12. During the two month construction period, First Street will be closed between Reed and William Streets. The Museum will be open during this time and we apologize for any inconvenience this may incur.

Parking will continue to be available on Market (with 3 hour meters), William and Reed Streets, as well as in the parking lot under the 280 overpass between First and Second Streets. A fence will be constructed around the park. All businesses will remain open throughout construction and the sidewalk on the east side of First Street will remain open, safely fenced off from the construction.

When First Street reopens in September, it will include one lane of traffic, one lane of parallel parking, and enough space for emergency vehicles.

Christine Jeffers, CFRE
Executive Director
