Vasco Road Safety Improvements
(Phase 1)

East County
PROJECT BUDGET $18.0 Million
PROJECT SPONSOR
CCTA
LOCATION:
Vasco Road through the Brushy Creek Area in Contra Costa County.
STATUS:
Completed
Pipes

Pipes run underneath the roadway to allow small animals to cross the road without getting hit by vehicles. At the end of the pipe there is a Tiger Salamander Jumpout that provides salamanders a sand bed for level landing.

The proposed project alleviates congestion by providing a consistent cross section with a passing lane in the southbound direction and eliminates the need for a merge. The project also improves safety with the installation of a solid median barrier to prevent cross-median collisions.
