Residents of Borchard Road near Los Vientos Drive could learn today what will happen to the controversial road, which some say is too steep--a 12% slope in one segment.
Thousand Oaks officials expect the first round of bids for $338,000 in safety improvements to the road, which will act as a second access to the 2,350-home Dos Vientos Ranch housing development. The City Council in January approved spending more than $500,000 in overall improvements.
The council, which will meet at 6 tonight at City Hall, will vote on authorizing the city manager to award the bids.
By late July, city officials hope to see a median dividing Borchard Road, a lighted crosswalk at San Antonio Drive and a traffic signal at Los Vientos Drive. Soon after, a long-awaited extension to Borchard should open.
