                          Safety Improvement  Project

Santa Clara County - The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will begin removing trees as part of a roadway safety improvement project on portions of State Route 152 from .2 mile north of Bella Vista Lane to .2 mile east of Watsonville Road  in Santa Clara County. This project is in advance of the Hecker Pass safety improvement project which will start in early summer 2014.

The proposed roadway improvements are designed to improve sight distance on this segment of the highway, thereby reducing the potential for cross-centerline accidents due to poor visibility. The tree removal process will be conducted during the daytime on weekdays from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. and should be completed by the middle of February 2014.

Most of the work will be conducted on the shoulders; however, some sections of roadway near Bella Vista Lane will require single lane closures and one way traffic control.

Signs will be posted and flaggers will be present to assist motorists during this ramp closure. Please drive cautiously when approaching the construction area.
