On Jan. 26, 2021, the City Council selected a raised concrete sidewalk as the preferred alternative on Sharon Road, from Alameda de las Pulgas to Altschul Avenue. The project aims improve pedestrian safety and the connection to La Entrada Middle School. It also includes a new 15 miles per hour school zone speed limit.
Currently, the shoulder of the roadway is only partially paved and unsuitable for wheelchairs. During winter months, rain creates large puddles that pedestrians try to avoid by stepping into the street.
City staff collected feedback from residents and La Entrada parents throughout the year, leading to a recommendation by the Complete Streets Commission before the City Council action in January 2021.
City staff is designing a raised concrete sidewalk for construction before the start of the upcoming school year.
