Project Description 

The City’s Local Road Safety Plan (LRSP) has identified 9 locations for guardrail replacement based on existing condition of the guardrails, number of collisions, high speeds and horizontal and/or vertical curves. At these  locations  the existing guardrails have separated from the anchor posts, been struck by vehicles, wooden anchor posts have deteriorated (wood rot) due to age and exposure to elements or are no longer vertically upright. 

The Guard Rail Repairs Project will replace 1,900 ft of the existing guardrails at these 9 locations  per most current Caltrans standards. The new guardrails in residential areas will be coated with rustic brown color for better blending into the surrounding environment. In addition, the project will replace 200 guardrail wood posts that have been damaged during the Woolsey fire at Olsen Road.

The project is currently in the bidding phase. It will be awarded for construction in September 2023, and will be completed in Spring 2024.  


The total estimated project cost is $590,000 and is included in the adopted FY 2021-23 Capital Improvement Budget. The total cost will be mostly offset by HSIP state grant in the amount of $512,500.
