Northbound auxiliary lane opens in time for holiday travel season
Just in time for holiday travel, the new northbound auxiliary lane is ready to go.
Paving wrapped up Tuesday and temporary pavement markings were installed. Striping is scheduled for next week after the new pavement cures.
In other project news:
- Landscaping continues on the northbound side. Crews are planting native varieties of redwood, oak, and fir trees, as well as shrubs, vines and grasses.
- Highway signs have been mounted on the La Fonda Bridge and other nearby locations. Plus, the Harbor High School entry sign is back up.
- Workers have been applying stain to the split rock face of retaining wall No. 3 on the northbound side of the highway.
- The Highway 1 auxiliary lanes project is to wrap up in coming weeks. Inspections will take place as crews put on the finishing touches.
The Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Commission, the project's lead agency, asks people to report graffiti and/or vandalism in progress by calling 9-1-1. Anyone with information on taggers or who would like to report graffiti can call the City of Santa Cruz at 420-5303 or the county at 427-0462, as well as 722-7771.
