Watsonville was recently awarded a $250,000 Planning Grant from Caltrans. The grant will allow the City, in partnership with the Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Commission and Caltrans, to develop a plan for roadway improvements in the Main Street area of downtown Watsonville that benefits pedestrians, bicyclists, public transit riders and motorists. Public engagement will be done to solicit community.
The plan will identify improvements that provide comfortable access to area shopping and services for all users, create a vibrant atmosphere, improve facilities for people living with disabilities and will support City and Statewide greenhouse gas emission reduction goals. Work on the plan will be done over the next twelve months.
