January 2014

The San Jose Creek Capacity Improvement and Fish Passage Project is taking longer than  anticipated.  Work outside the creek will continue and include installation of the barrier walls and fencing. Improvements to South Kellogg Avenue such as re-paving and some areas of new curb, gutter and sidewalk will also be part of this phase.   We expect work outside the creek will be completed in the spring of 2014.

  • Here’s the latest email update on the project (November 13, 2013)
  • The westbound Highway 217 on-ramp at Hollister Avenue will remain closed through the project’s completion.  (This is the on-ramp that puts you onto Highway 217 heading toward UCSB.)
  • Check out the time lapse video of the project here: http://www.sanjosecreekcam.com/images/timelapse/06-19-13.mov
  • Watch our short project videos to see the various stages of construction.
  • Traffic management measures are in place to assure the safety of site crews and pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles making their way through the area.
