This project will enhance the landscaping in the area of the new Cathedral Oaks Bridge Replacement Project and the new intersection of Hollister Avenue and Cathedral Oaks Road. Also included in this project will be additional plantings on the north side of HWY 101 between the highway and Calle Real. This will not only beautify the corridor but will minimize headlight glare sometimes experienced by driver on the highway from vehicles on Calle Real.
Purpose and Need
This project will enhance the plantings that will be installed by Caltrans along the HWY 101 corridor. The landscaping of the new intersection at Hollister Avenue and Cathedral Oaks is not included in the Cathedral Oaks Bridge Replacement Project, which is why the City pursued additional funds. It also gives the City more creative control. The stretch of chain link fencing between HWY 101 and Calle Real from the NB off ramp to Cathedral Oaks has been in need of replanting for years and this provides an opportunity to make that happen.
Strategic Plan Goal
Implement Citywide Capital Improvement Program
Funding for this project is a combination of Regional Surface Transportation Program (RSTP) and Transportation Enhancement Activities (TEA) funds.
Project design is complete. Construction anticipated for late 2016.
