2nd Avenue Road Closure

The City will be closing the portion of 2nd Avenue between 34th Street and Broadway to vehicle traffic. People walking and riding bikes will be allowed through the area. Construction is scheduled to begin on August 9, 2021 and last approximately one week. Construction detour signs will direct traffic around the area. Once construction is complete, vehicles will no longer be allowed on 2nd Avenue between 34th Street and Broadway. Please see background and maps below for details.

In 2017, the City of Sacramento started the Envision Broadway in Oak Park Plan that outlines a vision for future mobility along the Broadway corridor from Franklin Blvd. to Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.

Through conversations with the community and data analysis it became apparent that a disproportionate number of collisions happen at the intersection of 34th St. and 2nd Ave.
In fall 2019, the project team set up a temporary demonstration of the 2nd Ave. closure to gather community feedback and test a conceptual design intended to reduce crashes while maintaining through travel by people riding bikes. Feedback revealed that much of the community feels more comfortable traveling through this area with this portion of 2nd Avenue closed to vehicles.

In March 2020, the Envision Broadway in Oak Park Plan was approved by the Sacramento City Council and the City was recently awarded funding for the next phase and will begin initial design and environmental review in the next year. In the meantime, the City will move forward with this small portion of the project to improve safety and mobility in the near-term. 



The project will close the portion of 2nd Ave. between 34th St. and Broadway to motor vehicles but remain open for those walking and biking.

In a Vehicle:

There are several alternate routes to travel around the closed area, some of which are detailed below.

On a Bike

2nd Avenue provides an important east/west bicycle connection through the neighborhood. Bicycles will be allowed across Broadway and through the closure as shown below.

As a pedestrian:

Pedestrians will continue to use the crosswalks at 35th and Broadway. There will be a new opportunity to cross 2nd Ave. within the area closed to motor vehicles.
