Document Description
Widen Balfour Road to bring the shoulders up to current design standard and provide a driver recovery area and a bike lane. The project segment is approx.3 miles long and is a narrow, substandard two-lane road that receives substantial traffic at high speeds. The Project segment serves as a thoroughfare between Brentwood and Discovery Bay as well as a commuter route to SR 4. The project will widen the existing 18 to 20 foot pavement width to 36 feet wide (two 12-foot wide travel lanes with 6-foot wide paved shoulders/bike lanes and 2 foot wide shoulder backing on each side). The project does not increase the number of travel lanes and will therefore not increase the capacity of the roadway.
