Ramp Modification on State Route 25 in Hollister Begins Saturday

SAN BENITO COUNTY - A one-mile curb ramp modification project on State Route 25 at Maple St., First St., Second St., and Park St. in the City of Hollister begins Saturday, February 15, Caltrans officials have announced.

Roadwork consists of shoulder closures for approximately two weeks. Minimal delays, if any, are anticipated. Roadwork is expected to be completed by March 1, weather permitting.

The purpose of the project is for Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance which will in turn complete the relinquishment process of this portion of Hwy 25 to the City of Hollister.

Graniterock of Watsonville is the contractor for this $50,000 project.

Caltrans reminds motorists to move over or slow down when driving through Caltrans work zones.
