Document Description
NOTE: Review Per Lead The I-5/Richards Boulevard interchange provides primary access to the Richards Boulevard Redevelopment Area, which is located north of the City's Central Business District. This redevelopment area encompasses the RSP area as well as the Township 9 development site. Full buildout of the Railyards and Township 9 developments will add numerous residences and business, resulting in substantial traffic to the area and requiring a number of transportation and circulation improvements, including improvements to the I-5/Richards Boulevard interchange. The City is pursuing an immediate project on the local road system that would provide the most beneficial set of access and circulation improvements given the constaints posed by I-5, the existing interchange, and existing development. Upgrades to the ultimate I-5/Richards Boulevard interchange configuration to meet long-term capacity needs would be conducted as a separate project in the future.
