Document Description
The project involves the acquisition of additional right of way for, realignment of, and widening of Orchard Road, at the intersection of Orchard Road and Fairview Road. This is being done to safely accommodate Federal Service Transportation Assistance Act oversized and California legal trucks which are utilizing this intersection during agricultural harvesting periods. Currently, this intersection is only legally capable of supporting vehicle turning movements for smaller, passenger and farm vehicles accessing agricultural-use properties off of Orchard Road. As agricutural products, grown on properties in San Benito County fronting Orchard Road, find direct sale markets in nation-wide produce distribution and retail outlets, larger trucks are utilizing the roadways to access these agricultural properties. To insure that the turning radii at this intersection is legally adequate, the County will be acquiring further right of way for the intersection, and correspondingly realigning, and widening the road surface.
