Foothill Boulevard will be under construction beginning in the fall of 2018.
The City identified the Foothill Boulevard Corridor as an area for improvement in the 2006 General Plan Update. The City was successful in obtaining the roadway from Caltrans in 2009. When Caltrans relinquished the roadway to the City it gave the City $5.7 million dollars to upgrade and maintain the road.
Over the past five years, the City has gathered feedback from the community and City commissions on a master plan for the roadway. In 2017, the Master Plan was completed and the City hired an engineering firm to complete construction plans.
The plans are completed and the project will go out to bid in September of 2018.
The City was successful in obtaining a $7 million SB1 grant from the California Transportation Administration as well as smaller grants from other agencies. More than half of the $16 million project will be paid using grant funds.
