Project Description

The Bell Avenue Complete Street Project would transform existing Bell Avenue from Bollenbacher Ave to Astoria Street into a complete street that encourages a pedestrian, bicycle, and transit friendly environment. The proposed project includes 2.8 miles of pavement rehabilitation, sidewalk construction to eliminate existing gaps in sidewalk infrastructure, minor widening in some areas to provide adequate width for bike lanes, signal modifications and new signing and striping along the corridor.


The goal of this project is to make Bell Avenue a more inviting and safe place for all users by providing bike lanes, and connecting existing segments of sidewalk.

Costs and Funding

The project is funded through Federal Funding provided through the Regional Surface Transportation Program with matching funds provided by local transportation tax measure dollars.


Preliminary engineering and environmental studies are currently underway, and are anticipated to be completed in 2019. Final engineering design is anticipated to be completed in 2021, with construction projected for 2022.
