Document Description
The County of San Diego Department of Public Works proposes to improve an ~2.84 mile section of Cole Grade Road between Pauma Heights Road/West Oak Glen Road to Fruitvale Road in the Unincorporated community of Valley Center in northern San Diego County. The proposed improvements to Cole Grade Road will include the installation of a 12-foot wide two-way left turn lane; two 12 foot wide lanes; two 5-foot wide bike lanes with 3-foot wide graded shoulders adjacent to the bike lanes; and drainage swales on both sides of the road as needed. Additionally, there will be a 6-foot graded parkway on the east side of the road which can include the utility undergrounding, signs, mailboxes, etc., and an 11-foot wide pathway on the west side of the road with fencing along the outside as needed. The project will also require drainage improvements to the two existing Keys Creek tributary crossings within the project area near Cool Valley Ranch Road. The project includes the replacement of the existing box culvert crossings south of Cool Valley Ranch Road with a bridge and the improvement to the existing box culvert crossing north of Cool Valley Ranch Road. Project construction will require the acquisition of right-of-way (ROW) necessary to construct the road improvement project, including areas for drainage improvement. In addition, temporary easements would be required during construction activities. The proposed construction is anticipated to take ~18 months to complete. The proposed project is designated to enhance existing road conditions on Cole Grade Road by improving traffic flow and providing improved facilities for motorists, bicyclists, equestrians, and pedestrians.
