Continuous Green Signal

Bollinger Canyon Road/I-680 Freeway New Operational Improvements

The finished work includes new signalization, signing, striping, and the use of surface mounted channelizers to provide a continuous green traffic signal indication for westbound Bollinger Canyon Road for vehicles passing Sunset Drive and getting onto the southbound I-680 Freeway on-ramp.

This Project was successfully constructed through the existing Reimbursement Agreement for the Bollinger Canyon Road Widening work facilitated by a change order with Sunset Development. To date, there has been positive feedback from the public regarding this newly revised configuration.  

A few additional enhancements are planned for the near future, which include:

  • Roadway striping to add two new I-680 Freeway symbols on the pavement of Bollinger Canyon Road west of Sunset Drive, to designate the northbound and southbound freeway on-ramp lanes.
  • One additional directional sign on the Bollinger Canyon Road at Sunset Drive traffic signal pole.
  • Replacement of faded Caltrans Freeway entrance signs.

Staff will submit an item to City Council on July 28th to request authorization to coordinate with Caltrans to install new downtown signage on the I-680 Freeway in advance of the Bollinger Canyon Road exits to direct drivers to the City’s downtown.
