Document Description
The proposed project involves installation of a light emitting diode (LED) digital display freeway-oriented sign within an embankment on the north side of SR 78. The project site is located between the southern terminus of Rancho Del Oro and SR 78 within a dedicated right-of-way for the future extension of Rancho Del Oro Drive. The proposed project is approximately equidistant between the SR 78/El Camino Real interchange to the west (4,800 ft) and SR/College Boulevard interchange to the east (4,600 ft). The project consists of a "V" shaped, dual sided, 48'-2 1/2" wide and 17'-11 1/2" LED display attached to a pylon steel support structure, anchored in a concrete footing with an estimated surface area of 10 sf within a 40 sf sign installation area. Environmental shields (6' wide and 17'-11 1/2" high) would be installed at the north end of both sign faces to minimize upslope light spill. The top of the sign would be 39'-7" above the existing ground level and 98' above mean sea level. The total footprint (including sign installation area, access pathways, staging area and crane parking area) is approximately 0.3-acre.
