This project will replace deteriorated or missing sidewalk along both sides of Magnolia Avenue from Hollister Avenue south to Gaviota Street. The project includes curb, gutter, sidewalk, driveway, ADA access ramps, and tree replacements.
Purpose and Need
There is currently a gap in the sidewalk along the east side of Magnolia Avenue just south of Hollister Avenue for approximately 140 feet making pedestrian travel difficult. This project will fill the sidewalk gap with new sidewalk to provide continuous accessibility and increase safety for pedestrians. The project will also replace deteriorated sidewalk on the west side as well as driveway apron and ADA access ramps.
Strategic Plan Goals
Strengthen infrastructure and maintain a safe community.
Funding for this project is through Measure A local funds and US Housing and Urban Development - Community Development Block Grant.
Construction has started on the Magnolia Sidewalk Infill Project. To improve pedestrian travel in the area, the existing sidewalk will be removed and new sidewalk will be constructed on both sides of Magnolia Avenue between Hollister Avenue and Gaviota Street. The project will take about six weeks to complete (early November 2017) and make improvements to walking paths, sight distance at the intersections for drivers, drainage along Magnolia Avenue, and driveway access. All businesses will remain open during construction.
