North Depot/Fesler Intersection Improvement Project

 

Drivers are advised that changes are coming to the intersection of North Depot Street and West Fesler Street.

 

The City is building a safety improvement project designed to slow vehicles, provide better pedestrian access, and add bike lanes, all the while improving traffic flow through the intersection. 

 

What is changing?

 

  • The addition of median islands in North Depot and West Fesler Streets, to guide and slow vehicle traffic;

     

  • The addition of bike lanes through the intersection;

     

  • Elimination of the STOP sign on northbound Depot Street;

     

  • Installation of a STOP sign for westbound Fesler Street;

     

  • Enhanced pedestrian crossing of West Fesler Street with a pedestrian refuge island.

 

An exhibit with photos and a street map of the changes can be found on the City of Santa Maria website at www.cityofsantamaria.org/depot.

 

The intersection work is anticipated to be completed and fully opened by September.  This project is funded by a Highway Safety Improvement Program Grant and by gas tax revenues.

 

Questions may be directed to the Department of Public Works/Engineering Division, at 925-0951 extension 2225.
