Santa Clara Transit Station: Soil Probing Near Green Lane/Public Hearing

May 30, 2019

Near the site for the proposed Santa Clara Transit Station, a consultant will be working adjacent to Green Lane performing soil probing near a tree located on the south side of the street. The date for the soil probing will be on either May 31, June 5, or June 6. About a week after the soil probing is completed, vacuum excavation will be done around the tree. A truck will be on site and water will be sprayed onto the soil and then vacuumed out. The purpose of the soil probing and vacuum excavating will be to better understand the tree’s root system in order to properly pave that section of Green Lane.  
“It is important to understand that no construction is taking place on the site for the proposed Santa Clara Transit Station,” said Pat Walsh, LTD’s Public Information Officer. “These activities are part of the due diligence that LTD is doing on the property and the area around it.”
