Annual Resurfacing of Various Streets:
This annual project helps keep City streets in a safe, smooth riding condition for vehicular traffic. Streets are analyzed on a biannual basis using the City’s Pavement Management System (PMS). Included as part of this project is the replacement of existing traffic loop detectors and the reconstruction of pavement surface approaches to signalized intersections where broken pavement can no longer hold traffic loops in place.
Annual Sidewalk and Intersection Ramp Installations
This annual project includes the construction of new sidewalks and intersection ramps at various locations where sidewalks and intersection ramps do not currently exist. This project also includes adding yellow detectable truncated domes at the existing ramps in compliance with ADA requirements. This project provides a safe walking area for pedestrians in older sections of the City. It also improves access to public facilities and commercial locations for the mobility impaired and bicyclists.
Annual Sidewalk Maintenance:
This annual project provides for the replacement of sidewalks that have become a tripping hazard to pedestrians Citywide. Typically, the City’s street crews grind down those areas where concrete sidewalks have become displaced, caused either by expansive soil conditions or tree roots. In areas where grinding is not a viable solution, the sidewalk needs to be removed and replaced by a construction project. Repairs may include the replacement of sidewalk, integral curb and gutter, and the installation of tree root, or water barriers.
Annual Traffic Buttons and Line Marker Installation:
This annual project provides for channelization revisions and/or major replacement of traffic control markings (that is, buttons, pavement markings, etc.) in accordance with City design standards. This project improves the safety of our roadways by improving or maintaining traffic control markings.
Bi-Annual Installation of Flashing Beacons and In-Pavement Flashers:
This bi-annual project provides for the installation of flashing beacons and in-pavement flashers at multi-lane uncontrolled locations. The Federal Highway Administration Study indicates that additional visual indicators can improve the safety of the crosswalks. We have installed both flashing beacons and in-pavement flashers at test locations to determine the benefit of these devices. This project would expand the installation to include all uncontrolled crosswalks on multi-lane roadways where vehicle volumes indicate the need for additional visual notification of the crossing.
Bi-Annual Neighborhood Traffic Calming Devices:
Neighborhood quality of life is a high priority emphasized in the General Plan. Continued new residential and commercial development has increase traffic impacts on existing neighborhood collector streets resulting in an increase in traffic volume and speeding problems. Traffic calming devices have proven to be effective in mitigating these problems. This program installs traffic calming devices on neighborhood streets in response to citizen requests for service and available funding. Devices include traffic circles, speed lumps, radar signs, signing, and other design elements to slow traffic speed. Click here for more information about Traffic Calming.
Old Stanley Boulevard Improvements:
Reconstruction of Old Stanley Boulevard from Main Street to First Street including the construction of a new street roadway section, concrete curbs, gutters and sidewalks, landscape area and storm drain improvements. This project will bring Old Stanley Boulevard up to current City engineering standards, and provide for pedestrian access along Old Stanley Boulevard to Main Street.
Upgrade of Traffic Signal Master Software:
This project will upgrade the current traffic signal master system from 2001 software standard to the 2007 software standard. The project will provide increased functionality of the traffic signal system facilitating expanded uses, including the addition of the Transit Priority module and better real time signal monitoring.
Bridge Construction and Road Widening at Bernal Avenue at Arroyo Del Valle/Vineyard Avenue:
Construct a second bridge on Bernal Avenue over the Arroyo del Valle near
Vineyard Avenue adjacent to the existing bridge and widen the bridge approaches north and south of the proposed bridge to allow for two lanes of traffic and a bicycle lane in each direction. These improvements will reduce traffic congestion on Bernal Avenue and the surrounding community.
Foothill Road Widening (east side) From Bernal Avenue to Foothill Place:
This project will widen the east side of Foothill Road from Bernal Avenue to Foothill Place by approximately eight feet. Improvements will include a widened street section, concrete curb, asphalt overlay, retaining wall, installation of storm drain pipe and striping. The widening will accommodate bicycles and pedestrians.
Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan:
This project will create a Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan to compliment the Community Trails Master Plan. The plan will outline and prioritize the projects needed to create a uniform and connected pedestrian and bicycle network in Pleasanton. For more information click here.
