The long-awaited Hollister Class I Bike Path will begin construction in May 2017 and is scheduled to take about six months. The Bike Path is intended to provide a way for many school children living south of Hollister Avenue to safely bike to Ellwood School. It runs from Pacific Oaks Drive west to Ellwood School. Existing sidewalks will be replaced and new street trees will be planted. Hollister Avenue will still have four lanes of travel with a center left turn lane.
While most of the construction will occur during summer, keeping school children safe is a top priority. The Project will include a comprehensive and safe traffic control plan to ensure safety and to minimize the impact to the local residents, students, school, motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists.
