Project Description

The project location is the two-mile Broadway corridor between 3rd Street and 29th Street, south of downtown Sacramento, California. It anchors multi-modal transportation connections and improves access for all modes through introduction of a four lane to three lane road diet, new buffered bicycle lanes, new marked pedestrian crossings and refuge islands, and multi-modal improvements at two intersections. The planning document for the Broadway Complete Street Plan is available here.

The project is designed to calm traffic, improve safety, and make the street more inviting for travel on foot and by bicycle.

Costs and Funding

The estimated total project cost (including environmental clearance, design, and construction costs) is $10M. The project will be delivered in two phases. The first phase, from 3rd Street to 16th Street, is estimated to cost $4.4M (including environmental clearance, design, and construction) and has received funding through the Active Transportation Program grants, CDBG Block Grants, Measure A funds, and Major Street Construction funds. The City is pursuing grant funding to construct the second phase of the project, from 16th Street to Franklin Boulevard.


Design is anticipated to be completed by Fall 2020 with construction occurring in 2021.
