This project will correct Americans with Disabilities (ADA) deficiencies and upgrade the existing rest room facility at Crystal Springs Safety Roadside Rest Area (SRRA). The site serves northbound Route 280 – the Junipera Serra Freeway, near the Town of Hillsborough in San Mateo County.

The project was initiated to upgrade the Crystal Springs SRRA and bring the site into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. Construction of a small CHP substation will increase the profile of law enforcement at the site, thereby improving visitor safety, and curtailing illegal activities. Site security and traffic cameras will provide additional safety enhancement.Click to Enlarge

Rest room facilities will be expanded to accommodate current levels of visitation, and vending facilities will be provide to serve the motoring public. Old and failing utility facilities will be replaced. Rest area closed during construction.

Landscape planting, where it is impacted by construction activities will be replaced, and a remote irrigation control system, supported by Maintenance, will improve maintenance safety and efficiency. The restored landscaping will improve the visual quality of the site for visitors to the site, and for motorists on Route 280.

The Town of Hillsborough, San Mateo County, the California Highway Patrol, and the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission each support this project.
