City to seek funding for Highway 1 pedestrian bridge

Posted: Friday, Jan 31st, 2014

WATSONVILLE Seeking to relieve the traffic congestion on Harkins Slough Road when students enter and leave Pajaro Valley High School, Watsonville city officials will seek funding to construct a pedestrian overpass next to the current bridge over Highway 1.

According to Maria Ester Rodriguez, assistant director of public works and utilities, in 1998, the city received more than $7 million in funding to reconstruct the Harkins Slough Road overpass into a four-lane bridge and add an off-ramp on southbound Highway 1 and an on-ramp to northbound.

The project was postponed as the city worked on other projects, such as building Pajaro Valley High School and a bridge over Struve Slough on Harkins Slough Road, Rodriguez said.
