Hollister Ave Interim Striping Project Update

The Hollister Avenue Old Town Interim Striping project is well underway with work scheduled to be completed in late July, ahead of the original schedule.

The grinding and paving work on Hollister Avenue between Fairview Avenue and Kinman Avenue is done and now the next step is the striping of one lane in each direction. The night work is tentatively planned for July 10th and 11th but is subject to change. 

Also this month, crews will remove additional vegetation in accordance with permitting requirements. A comprehensive plant mitigation program is an important component of Project Connect. More information about this mitigation work, which will be completed by the end of the project, can be viewed on the project webpage (scroll to the bottom of the page to view).

Once complete, Hollister Avenue will feature:

  • One vehicle lane in each direction
  • Painted median
  • Dedicated bike lanes in each direction
  • Back-in, angled 90-minute parking along the north side of Hollister Ave.
  • Improved pavement
  • New traffic signals

The Old Town Hollister Avenue improvements are part of the multi-year Project Connect, the largest capital improvement project in the City’s history, which kicked off construction in March. Since then, work has been done to remove trees and clear vegetation, relocate utilities, and install temporary traffic signals. 

The City understands that long-term projects can be inconvenient for those who live in, visit, or have businesses in the area. We appreciate your patience and look forward to the project’s positive impact.
