Current Capital Projects
As part of a long-range master plan, Fiscal Year 2021-2022 will see the City continue to reinvest in its infrastructure, particularly in the area of roadways, parks, and streetscapes as described below:
LVMWD-Calleguas Intertie Project
Calleguas Municipal Water District (Calleguas) and Las Virgenes Municipal Water District (LVMWD) each own and operate potable water systems largely dependent on imported water supply. On March 10, 2015, these districts entered into an agreement to construct an interconnection to improve the redundancy and reliability of both water systems. The goals of this project are to improve water storage and distribution systems, improve the ability to provide water, and reduce the risk of potential water shortages associated with natural disasters.
Phase one of this important water supply resiliency project is now complete for the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District portion of the work. Construction of a new pump station/Pressure Reducing Station along with utility and street work for installation of water pipeline is currently being commenced by Calleguas Municipal Water District along Lindero Canyon Road from the northernmost city limit to Kanan Road. Traffic control measures are in place along Lindero Canyon Road during construction. Calleguas and its contractor endeavor to minimize construction impacts on the public. Work will occur during daytime and nighttime hours. The patience and understanding of our local residents during the construction of this vital water supply reliability project is very much appreciated and valued.

Annual Street Resurfacing Program
The current annual street improvement project includes paving the Civic Center parking lot, Lakeview Canyon Road and Watergate Road (west of Lakeview) and slurry sealing Thousand Oaks Blvd. See maps below for work locations and schedules. The project will wrap up in late June with the paving at the Civic Center parking lot.
Advanced Street Name Sign Program
The current advanced street name sign project replaced a total of ten advanced street name signs and replaced the particle boards with more durable TREX composite boards on Triunfo Canyon Rd, Lindero Canyon Rd, and Agoura Rd. The signs and boards were installed on June 8.
Sidewalk Improvement Program
The current sidewalk improvement project is a component of our long-term public right-of-way enhancements and improvements. The project will add new walkways in the City right-of-way on Lindero Canyon Road and Agoura Road.
Currently in the design phase is the installation of new sidewalk on the east side of Lindero Canyon Rd that extends from the existing sidewalk at Whim Dr. to the intersection at Hedgewall Dr. Also in the design phase is a new sidewalk on the west side of Lindero Canyon Road that extends from the existing sidewalk at the bus stop south of Agoura Road to the Westpark Driveway and then from the Westpark Driveway to Baronsgate Drive.
Presently, the installation of new sidewalk on the north side of Agoura Road underwent construction on June 14. This new sidewalk segment provides access to the existing transit stop west of the Chevron station
Traffic Signal Pole Painting
Recently completed are new traffic signal pole replacements throughout the City. Over the next couple of months you’ll see the City’s contractor around town, prepping and painting at these traffic signals. Work is being completed in two phases, with Phase 1 beginning this year. Phase 1 locations include: Thousand Oaks Blvd at Via Colinas, Thousand Oaks Blvd at Portola Ct, Lindero Canyon Rd at Russell Ranch Rd (North), Lindero Canyon Rd at Foxfield Dr, Triunfo Canyon Rd at Three Springs Dr.
Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon
The new system operational in November or December. CLICK HERE to see a video that explains how the system works and what motorists should do when the beacon is activated. The beacon will normally be dark – no displays will be on. When a pedestrian presses the button, the beacon will go through a sequence of five phases:
- Flashing Yellow – This will alert motorists that the beacon has been activated and is about to turn yellow.
- Steady Yellow – Just as for a regular traffic signal, this warns motorists of an upcoming light.
- Steady Red – Just as for a regular traffic signal, this means motorists must stop and wait.
- Alternating Flashing Red – A flashing red is always treated like a stop sign, which means each motorist must stop, and may then proceed if the crosswalk is clear of pedestrians.
- Dark – All displays will turn off until the beacon is again activated by a pedestrian.
