Guadalupe Ditches Relocation Project

Project Information

Description (General):
To improve safety by relocating the drainage ditches and other fixed objects to create a 30 foot clear recovery zone (CRZ) along two sections of Route 166 between Guadalupe and Santa Maria.

Purpose/Benefits:
Reduce the potential and severity of run-off-road accidents. The 30 foot CRZ would allow errant vehicles more space to recover if they were to drive off the highway.

Proposal:
To remove all fixed objects within 30 feet from the edge of traveled way (white lane stripe) such as poles, culverts, and headwalls.

Schedule:
This project will be constructed in the summer of 2013 and is limited to May 1- October 31 as a permit requirement. The work involves the roadside only, not the pavement, so travel delays are not expected.
