Broadway Intersection Rendering

Figure 1- Project Rendering

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 $15M. The project will be delivered in two phases:

  • The first phase, from 3rd Street to 24th Street, including the extension of 29th Street from X Street to the SR-99 ramp, is estimated to cost $11.6M (including environmental clearance, design, and construction) and has received funding through the Active Transportation Program grants, SACOG Community Design and Regional Transformative programs, Community Development Block Grants, Measure A funds, and Major Street Construction funds.
  • The last phase implements the proposed corridor improvements in the segment between 24th Street and 29th Street. This new segment is estimated to cost $3M (including design and construction). The City has secured additional federal grant funding through SACOG to construct this phase after the initial phase is complete.


The project team has completed environmental studies, analyzing traffic operations in the corridor, and is moving into final design activities. Final design is expected to take 12-16 months and requires coordination with other agencies such as Sacramento Regional Transit, California Department of Transportation, and Union Pacific Railroad. 

Design of the first phase (3rd Street to 24th Street) is anticipated to be completed by Summer of 2022 with construction occurring in 2023.

Design of the final phase (24th Street to 29th Street) is expected to be completed by Summer of 2023 with construction occurring in 2024.
