The purpose of this project is to improve safety and operations for all users, including bicyclists, pedestrians, and equestrians. This project proposes to help reduce the number and severity of collisions within this segment of SR 174. This project is scheduled to go to construction during the summer of 2018.

The open house will be held on May 7, 2015 from 5 – 7 p.m. at the Peardale Fire Station #257, located at 15057 Colfax Hwy, near the Peardale Rd. intersection.

The open house will allow area residents, local officials,Caltrans staff and other interested persons to exchange information about the proposed project.
