Current Capital Projects
As part of a long-range master plan, Fiscal Year 2020-2021 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. Both agencies are subject to planned and unplanned interruptions of water deliveries that can negatively impact their ability to deliver potable water to their respective customers. On March 10, 2015, Calleguas and LVMWD entered into an interconnection agreement to improve future reliability of both systems.
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.

Annual Street Resurfacing Program
The Fiscal Year 2021-22 street improvement project is currently in design and will include paving the Civic Center parking lot, Lakeview Canyon Road and Watergate Road (east of Lakeview) and slurry sealing Thousand Oaks Blvd.
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 is expected to be 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.
