The project adds new sidewalks to the east side of Pierce Road, the north side of Henderson Avenue and the south side of Del Norte Avenue. The ADA-compliant sidewalks, curb ramps and driveways will improve safety and access.
Residents will be able to walk safely, separated from moving cars. It will create clear paths, free of trip hazards and be accessible for people with disabilities.
Project funds come from the Measure “A” Pedestrian and Bicycle Program Funding Grant.
City staff completed a preliminary design of the project with construction anticipated for Summer 2020.
The proposed design no longer requires extending the curb into the street. However, several heritage trees will need to be removed. In return, the City has partnered with Canopy to plant trees near the sidewalk in the public right of way.
