The Combie Road Corridor Improvement Project is scheduled for 2017 and 2018 and consists of two phases.
Phase 1 will include utility relocation and underground work necessary for any future widening. The utility undergrounding work is schedule for late summer 2018 and will be funded primarily by Pacific Gas and Electric’s Rule 20A allocation program. The project will focus on utility underground work along Combie Road from Highway 49 to east of Higgins Road.
Phase 2 will widen Combie Road, install a traffic signal at the Combie Road/Higgins Road intersection, realign the Higgins Fire Station with the new signal for improved access, and construct a bicycle and pedestrian path along the north side of Combie Road from Highway 49 to W. Hacienda Drive. The project is funded primarily by local traffic development impact fees, Senate Bill 1 gas tax funding, and other local funding sources.
Estimated Construction Cost
Phase 1 - $1.3 million
Phase 2 - $4.0 million
Phase 1 will begin construction in September 2018. Phase 2 is scheduled for construction in spring or summer 2019.
An initial study has been prepared and a mitigated negative declaration (IS/MND) is being proposed for this project. The IS/MND for this project was approved by the County following public comment in early fall 2016.
