San Pablo Avenue Complete Streets Project
A $5.8M, multiple grant funded, roadway improvement project included streetscape and pavement rehabilitation. The Project is located along San Pablo Avenue between Rivers Street and Hilltop Drive. The project improved San Pablo Avenue for all roadway users by adding Class 2 bike lanes in both directions of travel and constructed sidewalk along the western side of San Pablo.
Existing traffic signals at all intersections were replaced or modified and a new signalized intersection at La Puerta was constructed. Two new retaining walls were constructed along with a new soil nail wall to allow the roadway to be widened sufficiently to accommodate the new facilities for non-motorized roadway use. Additional improvements included storm drains, new electrical, standard and decorative street lighting, new trees and landscaping, and grinding and HMA overlay of majority of the roadway.
FY 22-23 Citywide Slurry Seal Project
FY 22-23 Citywide Slurry Seal Project is a $1.2 million locally funded project that includes digout and repair of failed pavement, crack sealing, slurry sealing and pavement delineation, and reinstallation of striping and pavement markings for 79 residential streets within the City Limits. Many of the streets are narrow with street parking on both sides of street. During slurry seal operations, parking and traffic is prohibited, so traffic control and public notification is extremely important. Park Engineering is providing resident engineering and inspection services for the project.
