Traffic signal work planned on Soquel Avenue May 4
On Tuesday, May 4, the city of Santa Cruz will be making some upgrades to the signal light at Soquel and Hagemann avenues and Trevethan Street. From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., the traffic light will not be working, as the city rewires and installs new signal equipment. Motorists should treat the intersection as a four-way stop. The signal lights are to be operational again by 3:30 p.m. and the evening commute. The improvements are part of a larger construction project in the area that runs through May 28. Soquel Avenue will be widened to protected left turn lanes with signal arrows. There also will be improvements to the sidewalk, pedestrian ramps, storm drain system and bike lane. During the project, motorists should expect intermittent lane closures weekdays on those three streets.
