Broadway: Camino Seco to Houghton

Broadway: Camino Seco to Houghton project was moved up on the RTA schedule.

The Broadway widening project from Camino Seco to Houghton Road is in Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) Third Period (2017 to 2021) with plans to widen the roadway to a four-lane roadway with bicycle lanes and sidewalks.

The section of Broadway between Camino Seco and Harrison is in the poorer pavement condition of the two sections. The Ward 2 office is keenly aware of the condition of this stretch of Broadway and we have had several conversations on addressing this section.
