The purpose of the project is to improve traffic safety at three spot locations along State Route 9. State Route (SR) 9 is a two-lane undivided conventional highway that runs north/south in Santa Clara County and through the Santa Cruz Mountains connecting SR 17 with the Saratoga Gap Open Space and Santa Cruz County. Within the project limits, SR 9 is designated as an official State Scenic highway. The existing facility consists of two approximately 11-foot lanes separated by a soft barrier and outside paved shoulders that vary in width.
