Construction Update - Bristol Street Slope

Since July 2014, construction crews have diligently worked on the Bristol Street Slope Stabilization Project. What used to be a dirt slope, located south of the airfield and adjacent to Bristol Street North between Campus Drive and the SR-73 freeway bridge, will feature a sturdy block wall and beautiful drought-tolerant landscaping. The following plants were selected because they were drought-tolerant and non-berry producing so they would not attract birds: Creeping Fig (Ficus Pumila), Acacia (Acacia redolens "desset carpet"), Trailing Indigo Bush (Dalea Greggii) and New Zealand Flax (Phormium Tenax). The area is approximately 1,500-feet long and 20-feet high at its highest point above street grade.
