Bridge Street Medians Landscape Renovation
In 2019, the City of Watsonville Parks and Community Services and the Public Works and Utilities Departments completed Phase 1 of renovating the landscaping on the Bridge Street median islands. Phase I included the three median islands from Joyce Dr. to E. Bronte Ave. Starting in early February 2020, the city is commencing work on Phase II of the project which will encompass the median island from E. Bronte Ave. to Hushbeck Ave.
The intent of this project is to implement sustainable improvements that beautify the medians, while reducing water usage and maintenance costs. The project will eventually replace the grass at all five islands on Bridge Street with low-growing drought tolerant plants that will be irrigated by a low-volume subsurface irrigation system. Additionally, up to seventeen new trees will be added to the medians.
The City recently completed the final phase of this project in Winter 2021, with landscape renovations on the median island between Hushbeck Ave. and Beck St.
