Project Update - Complete

The California Way Rehabilitation Project is complete, pending acceptance by City Council. Along with previously completed work including over two blocks of new hot mix asphalt pavement and new ADA-compliant curb ramps, traffic safety improvements are now also complete. These safety improvements include four new ‘Flashing Yellow Amber’ signal heads for the left turns allowing left turns on green when traffic is light, and also providing a green left arrow for protected left turns when traffic is heavier. Improvements also include new vehicle detection which reduces the time you spend at a red light while no one is crossing in front of you. Pedestrian safety is also enhanced with new pedestrian push buttons which provide audible feedback to help the vision impaired to safely cross the street as well as new ‘countdown’ pedestrian signal heads telling you how long you have left to cross the street. Thanks to local area businesses for your patience while the work was being done.
