The San Jose Creek Capacity Improvement and Fish Passage Project is moving forward on schedule. If you drive on South Kellogg Avenue, you will notice a great deal of activity. The first phase of the project will widen the creek channel to increase storm water capacity and help prevent catastrophic flooding that has damaged homes and businesses in the past.
- Project construction will commence in mid-May.
- The westbound Highway 217 on-ramp at Hollister Avenue will close on May 6, 2013, and remain closed through the project’s completion in late 2013. (This is the on-ramp that puts you onto Highway 217 heading toward UCSB.)
- Watch our short project videos to see the various stages of construction.
- The July 17, 2012 project report to the City Council can be found here.
- South Kellogg Avenue between Kellogg Way and Thornwood Drive will continue to be closed to northbound traffic (through 2013). People will be directed to take Kellogg Avenue to Thornwood Drive to Pine Avenue and back to Hollister Avenue.
- Traffic management measures are in place to assure the safety of site crews and pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles making their way through the area.
