The need for the new Fleet and Materials Lab Facility and the Russell Avenue Street and Utility Improvements stemmed from the sale of County campus land to the State of California for the construction of a new courthouse. The land was sold to the state and will become a parking lot to support the courthouse. The new Fleet and Materials Lab facility is located on the northwest corner of the County campus at the southeast corner of Highway 101 and Bicentennial Drive.
The 21,000-square-foot facility will be used for servicing the county’s fleet of vehicles and for testing and analysis of soil and paving materials. The facility includes full-service vehicle and equipment maintenance and repair for both the County and other jurisdictions. The new fleet facility includes electric charging stations for 20 of the county’s 49 electric vehicles.
