North Depot/Fesler Intersection Improvement Project


Drivers are advised that changes are coming to the intersection of North Depot Street and West Fesler Street.


The City is building a safety improvement project designed to slow vehicles, provide better pedestrian access, and add bike lanes, all the while improving traffic flow through the intersection. 


What is changing?


  • The addition of median islands in North Depot and West Fesler Streets, to guide and slow vehicle traffic;


  • The addition of bike lanes through the intersection;


  • Elimination of the STOP sign on northbound Depot Street;


  • Installation of a STOP sign for westbound Fesler Street;


  • Enhanced pedestrian crossing of West Fesler Street with a pedestrian refuge island.


An exhibit with photos and a street map of the changes can be found on the City of Santa Maria website at


The intersection work is anticipated to be completed and fully opened by September.  This project is funded by a Highway Safety Improvement Program Grant and by gas tax revenues.
