About the Project

Broadway Street Project Map

In 2012, the Urban Land Institute’s Sacramento District Council (ULI), in cooperation with the Greater Broadway Partnership, developed a Vision Plan for the Broadway Corridor. The Vision Plan included a variety of recommendations for the Broadway Corridor from pedestrian enhancements, suggestions for mixed-use infill development, and aesthetic guidelines for each District and the Broadway Corridor as a whole. ULI envisioned Broadway not only as a Complete Street, but also as a premier pedestrian street.

Currently, the Broadway Corridor is automobile-dominated arterial with sidewalks of varying widths, complicated pedestrian crossings, and discontinuous bike lanes creating a less than optimal environment for anyone attempting to travel without a car.

The City of Sacramento, in collaboration with the Greater Broadway Partnership, Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG), Sacramento Regional Transit (RT), the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), and the community, is working to refine the work completed by ULI into a Complete Streets Plan in order to bridge the gap between vision and implementation. The result of this effort will be a detailed plan of specific improvements intended to balance all modes of travel and enhance the Broadway Corridor as a destination to live, work, and play.

The goals of the Broadway Complete Streets Plan include:

  • Balance accessibility for all modes of transportation in the Broadway Corridor
  • Enhance safety and comfort for all modes, especially pedestrians and bicyclists
  • Encourage economic revitalization and reinvestment along the Corridor
