Woodside Road cleans up its act
April 04, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal staff report

A stretch of Woodside Road and its key interchange with El Camino Real is getting a much-needed sprucing up as part of an agreement between Caltrans and Redwood City.

The work, which began in early February and continues through April, is cleaning up and maintaining Woodside Road from Broadway to Cypress Street through street sweeping, litter removal and keeping vegetation in check. Last year, Redwood City awarded a $350,000 contract out of its capital improvement project fund for the initial cleanup which tackles one of the major -- and neglected -- gateways into the city.

The project includes clearing the road and landscaped areas of debris, weeds and dead plants, improving visibility by pruning tree canopies and removing invasive species and preserving native species.

Once the initial work is done by the city's contractors, staff will take over the ongoing maintenance. The city is also looking at future projects with Caltrans to further improve the area.
