Santa Clara and Prospect Avenue Drainage Improvements and Sidewalk Gap Closure

Project Background

In April 2019, OC Public Works received an inquiry from an area resident regarding flooding at the intersection of Santa Clara Avenue and Prospect Avenue., which prompted staff to conduct a further investigation of the area.

Upon further inspection, OC Public Works identified a solution that would improve drainage and mitigate pooling water during and following rain events. In addition to the drainage improvements, staff identified a gap in the local sidewalk network. The gap, which stretches along the west side of Prospect Avenue from south of Santa Clara Avenue to just south of Rainier Drive, is a critical missing link in the area’s pedestrian infrastructure.

In an effort to enhance mobility, and to increase accessibility for all roadway users, OC Public Works is proposing to close the gap in the sidewalk network while simultaneously improving drainage issues in the area.
