D.W. BABCOCK SCHOOL ACCESS IMPROVEMENTS
Photo 1- Existing conditions on Woolley Way do not include formalized pedestrian sidewalks
Photo 2 – Existing Conditions – The intersection of El Camino Avenue and Albatross Way is un-signalized, creating a barrier between the elementary school to the south of El Camino Avenue and the neighborhoods to the north.
The City proposes to construct pedestrian improvements near D.W. Babcock Elementary School in northern Sacramento, located at Cormorant Way and Woolley Way. The project will include new curb, gutter and sidewalk, ADA-accessible curb ramps at corners and new crosswalks on streets adjacent to the school. The project will also include a new signalized intersection at El Camino Avenue and Albatross Way, to improve pedestrian access between the neighborhoods to the north of El Camino Avenue and the school, which is located to the south.
This project will improve connectivity and access for students, their families and residents.
COSTS AND FUNDING
The environmental documentation, engineering and construction for this project is funded through federal grants awarded by Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG), along with local funding.
Preliminary engineering and environmental studies are currently underway, and are anticipated to be completed in 2017. Final engineering design is anticipated to be completed in 2018, with construction projected for 2019.
