Five Points Intersection Access Improvements

The City is beginning final design of pedestrian and bicycle improvements at the Five Points Intersection (instersction of Thompson Blvd/Main St/Telegraph Rd). The project will add signalized pedestrian crossings, bike lanes, and sidewalk improvements so that the intersection is easier to cross. The project is funded by local City funds and a grant from VCTC.

Anacapa Middle School Safe Route to School Project

The City has also started the design phase of a Federally funded Safe Route to School project that will improve pedestrian and bicycle access to Anacapa Middle School. The project includes widening of Telegraph Rd, sidewalk, bike lanes, a new traffic signal at Telegraph Rd/College Dr and bike parking facilities on the Anacapa Middle School campus.
