Traffic Way receives pedestrian and accessibility improvements
City continues efforts to invest in the Downtown area with a focus on safety and mobility
-Traffic Way received pedestrian and accessibility improvements this week including new sidewalks, curb ramps and tree wells between the US 101 overcrossing and El Camino Real. The new sidewalks match the current city downtown area aesthetics including decorative pavers along the curb. To increase circulation at the intersection of Traffic Way and El Camino Real, a designated left turn lane was installed, providing additional capacity for motorists traveling through this widely used intersection. The improvements are part of the city’s ongoing efforts to encourage pedestrian and bicyclists access to the downtown area. The project was funded through the federal Community Development Block Grant Program, which focuses on the removal of barriers to pedestrian use and increases accessibility under the American with Disabilities Act (ADA).
“I wanted to thank the neighboring businesses for their patience throughout the project and encourage community members to visit, shop, eat and enjoy all of what the downtown has to offer,” said Public Works Director Nick DeBar at a recent ribbon-cutting.
Beginning next summer, Traffic Way and Ardilla Avenue will receive additional pavement rehabilitation, drainage improvements, pavement markings and traffic signage.
