The project also includes median removal, new crosswalks, and parklets.
This project contains elements that are both statutory and categorically exempt. The project includes striping of new bicycle lanes that are designated in the City's mobility plan 2035, and striping of new bicycle lanes exempt under Section 21080.20.5. The project's other components are categorically exempt under Class 1(3) of the City CEQA Guidelines since these elements include minor alteration of an existing street.
