Charleston Road – Arastradero Road Corridor
In March 2014, the City entered into a contract with Mark Thomas & Co. to develop preliminary designs and complete the project’s environmental assessment. The project advances the Complete Street elements of the Charleston Road-Arastradero Road Trial Projects including: new landscaped island medians; intersection bulb-outs to help reduce pedestrian crossing distances; enhanced bike lanes and bikeway facilities; new street trees; new streetlights; and streetscape treatments. The preliminary design phase of the project is intended to build consensus around community-preferred improvements before initiating final design. The City hosted two community workshops in May. The presentation given at the meetings can be found here.
Final design will begin in 2016 with phased construction starting in 2017.
The project is fully funded at $10 million including $1.45 million in grant funding.
