Document Description
The proposed project is a City of Escondido Capital Improvement Project to widen Felicita Avenue and Juniper Street in conformance with the City's General Plan (a total distance of approximately 1 mile). The project will be constructed in two phases. Phase 1 includes the widening of Juniper Street between 14th and 15th Avenues. The roadway width will be 64 feet from curb to curb, with 2 lanes in each direction and a left-turn lane. A portion of this widening (west side of Juniper Street, from Fifteenth Avenue to the Felicita Village condominium project entry drive) will be improved by the developers of Escondido Tract 841 (not a part of this City project). Additional improvements along 15th from Juniper to Broadway will include curb, gutter sidewalks and streetlights. In addition, the intersection of 15th/Juniper/Idaho will be realigned, and a traffic signal will be installed at that location. Water line replacement and storm drain upgrades will also be constructed at Juniper Street and Idaho Street. Three partial acquisitions will be required with Phase 1. Phase 2 will include the widening of Felicita Avenue between Escondido Boulevard and Juniper Street. This will consist of widening the existing two-lanes to full major roadway width. The width will vary between seventy nine to eighty-two feet curb to curb with two travel lanes in each direction and a raised median with left turn pockets provided at selected intersections. The widening of Juniper Street between Felicita Avenue and Chestnut Street consists of widening the existing two-lanes to full collector street width. The roadway width will be sixty-four feet from curb to curb, with two lanes in each direction and a left turn lane. New traffic signals will be installed at the intersections of Chestnut/Juniper (which will be realigned to the north to form a T-intersection with Juniper) and 13th/Juniper. This project will require the full acquisition of four privately owned parcels and partial acquisition of eight properties along the project frontage. Bike lanes will be provided with the implementation of the project along Felicita and Juniper.
