We want to hear from you!

Caltrans invites the local community to share their input about the proposed gateway monuments in Manila.

Gateway monuments have been considered for placement along SR-255 for visibility in both directions. The purpose is to greet motorists to the community and remind them to adjust their speed and care for the residential area.

Community engagement and feedback is an important part of project development to ensure local voices are being heard throughout the process.

The public is encouraged to take the online survey about the need, location and design for the proposed project.

You can find the survey at Be sure to visit and let your voice be heard about this community project.

The survey will be open until Sunday, Sept. 17, 2023, at 11:59 p.m. 


About the Campaign:

Clean California State Beautification projects are made possible through Governor Gavin Newsom’s Clean California initiative, a sweeping $1.2 billion, multiyear clean-up effort led by Caltrans to remove trash, create thousands of jobs, and engage communities to transform public spaces. Since 2021, the program has removed 1.4 million cubic yards of trash, created 3,500 jobs, and awarded $300 million in local grants.
