About the Project
The Medeiros Reach Project will reconnect the Oak Grove Nature Reserve to the Arroyo Mocho Creek to act as a floodplain during high flow events.
Zone 7 awarded a construction contract for the Arroyo Mocho Medeiros Reach Floodplain Reconnection Project and construction will commence in approximately May 2022 to August 2022. With minimal trail impacts, non-native and invasive species control work will continue once a quarter until October 2023.
The project is located within the Medeiros Reach (N/S College Ave to Anza Way and E/W Arroyo Rd to Holmes St).
Zone 7 will do its best to minimize construction impacts as much as practical and in accordance with County and City ordinances.
Please be aware of construction activities over the duration of the construction period and please use caution while traveling in this area.
