West Bay Builders Completes I-80 Rest Area in Vallejo
Vallejo, Calif., Apr., 2010 – West Bay Builders, a general contractor specializing in building and retrofitting projects for the public and private sectors, completed the Hunter Hill Safety Roadside Rest Area located on westbound Interstate 80 in Vallejo, Calif. A California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) project, the $3.7 million rest area was reconstructed to provide a more accessible, safe and serene place for travelers.
“We were pleased to handle this important project for Caltrans, and were able to deliver it on time and within budget,” said West Bay Builders’ President Paul Thompson. “It’s important to keep our highways safe for travelers, and Hunter Hill now boasts upgraded amenities, additional lighting and a new CHP office, among other features.”
Located just before the State Route 37 exit, West Bay Builders demolished the existing restroom building and constructed a new facility in compliance with the American Disabilities Act standards. New landscaping and picnic tables were also installed.
“Caltrans is committed to providing tired travelers with clean, accessible rest areas along California’s highways,” stated Caltrans District 4 Director Bijan Sartipi. “This newly reconstructed rest area provides a safe, accessible location for all motorists to stop, rest and resume travel as more alert and safer drivers.”
Recently re-opened to the public, Hunter Hill now provides daytime and nighttime rest and bathroom opportunities in a park-like setting. Additional features include a new California Highway Patrol office and designated pet-walk areas. The rest area also showcases the Blue Star Memorial Highway Monument and a topographical panoramic display of Vallejo and the San Francisco Bay Area.
