Del Paso Boulevard Road Diet and Resurfacing

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The objective of this project is to improve safety, mobility, and maintain a state of good repair for vehicular, bicycle, and pedestrian travel. The project consists of removing underutilized vehicular travel lanes and repurposing this space for a center two-way left-turn lane (TWLTL) and enhanced bicycle facilities. Signalized intersection improvements and pavement reconstruction / rehabilitation is also proposed.

The Del Paso Boulevard Project is in North Sacramento, west of Capital City Freeway (Business 80), and south of Interstate 80. The project spans nearly one mile along Del Paso Boulevard, from Marysville Boulevard to the south, to O’Farrell Drive to the north.

EXISTING DEL PASO BOULEVARD

Del Paso Boulevard is a four-lane collector with an Average Daily Traffic (ADT) of less than 5,000 vehicles. The outer lanes are relatively wide to accommodate on-street parking. There are vertical curbs, gutters, and sidewalks on both sides of Del Paso Boulevard; however, there are no bike lanes. Del Paso Boulevard has very poor pavement. Pavement Condition Index (PCI) scores range from 22-48.

 

Improved DEL PASO BOULEVARD

The project proposes a “road diet” to replace one vehicular lane from each direction of travel with a TWLTL and Buffered Class II Bike Lanes. On-street parking will be retained. The proposed lane configuration is shown. The existing pavement will be overlayed and base repair will occur as needed.

Signal Modifications: At the intersection of Del Paso Boulevard at Marysville Boulevard, signal equipment will be upgraded. This includes replacing traffic and pedestrian signal displays, controllers, installing new video detection, and other minor signal modifications. Non-compliant curb ramps will also be brought to standard at this intersection.

 

At the intersection of Del Paso Boulevard at Marysville Boulevard, signal equipment will also be upgraded. This includes upgrading mast arms, traffic and pedestrian signal displays, the controller cabinet, installing new video detection, installing emergency vehicle preemption, and other minor signal modifications. Curb ramps will upgraded.

Crosswalk Enhancement-Flashing Beacon: At the intersection of Del Paso Boulevard at Palo Verde Avenue, the existing uncontrolled marked crosswalk will be enhanced to a Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB) system. Bulb outs will be constructed to remove parking near the crossing, reduce the crossing length, and improve pedestrian visibility.
