On September 2, 2021, EDCTC awarded the contract to DKS and Associates after completing an extensive procurement process. EDCTC staff, DKS, and Caltrans held the grant kickoff meeting on October 22, 2021. The initial work on this effort has begun including user analysis and data collection along SR 49. The consultant team has completed on-site data collection and assessments. The project team met on November 30, 2021 to finalize the branding and website design. On Friday January 28, 2022 the project team took a tour of the corridor and performed a safety audit.
