Crews have accomplished a $1.2 million challenge to enhance security and walkability within the Ramona Historic Enterprise District.

Caltrans repaved the Important Road intersections at seventh Road and tenth Road, put in new textured/stamped and coloured crosswalks and painted sign posts all through the downtown district.

The challenge was a collaboration between Caltrans, the Ramona Neighborhood Planning Group and the Ramona Design Assessment Board to reinforce group character and enhance pedestrian security and entry to energetic transportation components.

At a Friday ceremony, San Diego County Supervisor Joel Anderson, together with representatives for Rep. Darrell Issa, state Senator Brian Jones and Meeting member Marie Waldron, joined members of the Ramona planning group, Ramona Management Council and Caltrans District 11 Director Gustavo Dallarda to rejoice the challenge’s completion.

“Ramona’s Historic Enterprise District is the guts and soul of the Ramona group and I’m glad that Caltrans and Clear California are bringing a lot wanted consideration to our area,” Anderson mentioned in a information launch from Caltrans.

The work was funded by Gov. Gavin Newsom’s $1.2 billion Clear California initiative, a multi-year effort led by Caltrans to beautify public areas, take away thousands and thousands trash from roadways, create jobs and have interaction communities all through the state to remodel public areas.

“Caltrans has partnered with communities all through the state to establish and develop Clear California tasks that meet the particular wants of every particular person area and neighborhood,” Dallarda mentioned. “By working collectively – as we’ve executed in bringing the Ramona Enchancment challenge to profitable completion – we’re serving to restore public delight in our communities.”
