State Route 152 Pavement Rehabilitation Project
Completion Video Tuesday, November 17
Santa Clara County- Caltrans Bay Area in partnership with the City of Gilroy, have successfully completed the pavement rehabilitation project along State Route (SR) 152, in the city of Gilroy. The project upgrades extend 2.6 miles on SR-152 west of Santa Theresa Boulevard, to Interstate 101, in the city of Gilroy.
The purpose of this project is to preserve and extend the life of the existing pavement, improve the ride quality, and enhance bicycle and pedestrian safety for years to come.
“Caltrans listened to the Santa Clara County community and its city officials on this important project. Also investing in projects with voter approved Senate Bill 1 (SB1) Funds makes this project for everyone a success”, Caltrans Bay Area Director Tony Tavares said.
The project will benefit motorists, cyclists and pedestrians who use SR-152 on their daily commute. In addition, the project replaced existing loop detectors, upgraded traffic signals at 12 intersections, installed Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon Systems and high visibility yellow crosswalk. Caltrans also installed delineated
bike lanes in both directions and upgraded 62 existing curb ramps to current Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) standards.
