Vallejo is Awarded Caltrans Clean California Grant For Lake Dalwigk Park Improvements Clean-up and Enhancement Project
VALLEJO, CA – In partnership with the Greater Vallejo Recreation District, Vallejo Flood and Wastewater District, and the Solano Resource Conservation District, the City of Vallejo is pleased to announce that the Caltrans Clean California Grant Program has awarded the group a $4.8M grant. The grant funds will be used to clean up and enhance Lake Dalwigk Park.
The proposed project will improve the existing trail through the park, making it more accessible and extending the paving on both ends for pedestrians and cyclists. This path extension will also allow travelers a safe route to access the Curtola Transit Center services.
Surrounding neighborhoods will also enjoy the benefits of improved access to the park and traffic calming improvements, increasing pedestrian and bike safety in the area.
Additional park and habitat improvements will include:
- a new restroom;
- shade structure;
- sidewalk and landscaping replacement along Lemon Street;
- two new monument signs; picnic tables and drinking fountains;
- trash receptacles;
- dog waste stations;
- interpretive information (informational signage); and
- new landscaping.
"This is a real win for the Vallejo Community! I am extremely proud of the collaborative work staff did to complete and submit this winning application," said IACM Gillian Hayes.
Vallejo Transportation Manager, Mark Helmbrecht said, "It was an extremely competitive grant, and only 30% of the submissions were awarded funding. This project will complement all of the trash clean-up and landscaping that has been going on for the past several years in the area as well as enrich the habitat and native plant work."
