This project will provide enhanced pedestrian safety improvements including the installation of Rapid Rectangular Flashing Beacons (RRFBs) at Patten Street, France/Andrieux Streets, Malet Street, and at a relocated crosswalk north of Traintown at Clay Street with new curb ramps.
The City has completed the design phase of the project and Public Works crews are prepared to begin foundation work for the installation of the enhanced crossings (Rapid Rectangular Flashing Beacons or RRFBs), weather depending.
This work will include drilling holes, setting rebar, securing anchor bolts, and pouring concrete for the foundations. The next phase of the operation will be to set the poles and all equipment/signage and connect the equipment to the solar panels. The enhanced crossings on Broadway at Clay, Malet, France/Andrieux, and Patten streets are expected to be complete by Fall 2023.
To be determined. The schedule is dependent on the delivery of materials and weather conditions. The project is estimated to be completed by Fall 2023.
As part of Fiscal Year 2021-22 budget adoption on June 21, the City Council funded the Broadway (SR12) Pedestrian Safety Project. This project would provide enhanced pedestrian safety improvements at Patten Street, France/Andrieux Streets, Malet Street and at a relocated crosswalk north of Traintown at Clay Street with new curb ramps. The Broadway (SR12) Pedestrian Safety Project was discussed in combination with the Broadway restriping plan that commenced in November 2022. Once the restriping project was completed, the City was able to move forward with the pedestrian crossing improvements. The City received Caltrans approval and an encroachment permit to work in Caltrans right of way and install the RRFBs on December 21st, 2022. The City’s Public Works department is managing and constructing this project internally and estimates that it will be completed in the Fall of 2023.
