The Oak Park Boulevard Sidewalk Gap Closure Project No. 04-23 will provide approximately 700 linear feet of new ADA-compliant concrete sidewalk along the north side of Oak Park Boulevard between Hook Avenue and the Pleasant Hill Library, new rectangular rapid-flashing beacons (RRFB) at two existing crosswalks, and new signage and striping.
The project is in a high priority location for pedestrian and bicycle improvements based on collision history, proximity to schools, number of nearby destinations, and traffic volume. The project will connect residents to popular nearby destinations, including Pleasant Hill Middle School, Pleasant Hill Library, Pleasant Oaks Park, pedestrian walking trails, and future athletic fields.
The project will construct a new ADA-compliant concrete sidewalk, within the public right-of-way, along the north side of Oak Park Boulevard between Hook Avenue and the Library, as well as the west side of Hook Avenue, spanning approximately 700 feet along nine residential properties. The project will construct new rectangular rapid-flashing beacon (RRFB) crossings at Oak Park Boulevard / Manor Avenue and Oak Park Boulevard / Via del Sol intersections to improve pedestrian and bicycle access and visibility.
January 2024 - The project is complete.
