Construction Advisory for Felter Road at Marsh Road, and Calaveras Road in Santa Clara County

What:
Large hauling trucks will remove soil from the Goldfish Pond Habitat Restoration site from the project entrance at Marsh and Felter Roads, heading west on Calaveras Road into Milpitas.

When: These 18-wheeler trucks will make approximately 20 trips a day hauling soil from the site starting Tuesday, September 25 through Tuesday, October 9, from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.


What you need to know:


  • Expect delays at Marsh and Felter Roads, and down Calaveras Road into Milpitas.
  • The contractor will have flaggers on site to ensure the safe flow of the trucks entering and exiting the roadway.
  • Marsh and Felter Road users could encounter temporary delays as trucks enter and exit the site. Cyclists and users of Calaveras Road may also encounter temporary delay due to the slow moving trucks on the road.
  • Please drive carefully during this period.

Why:
The SFPUC has begun construction on several habitat restoration projects throughout the Alameda Watershed in Alameda and Santa Clara Counties. The Goldfish Pond Restoration, located near the intersection of Felter and Calaveras Roads in Milpitas, will enhance and grade the existing Goldfish Pond, rebuild the embankments, plant over 10 acres for the various wetlands and five acres of riparian habitat creation. The Bioregional Habitat Restoration is a unique approach to mitigation that combines the impacts of several different Water System Improvement Program projects into one suite of projects. This pooling of resources maximizes our ability to make significant improvements to habitat for rare and endangered species.
