Document Description
The proposed project would construct a 2.3-mile segment of new road providing a connection between Avenue 12 in the south to a planned segment of Rio Mesa Boulevard within the Tesoro Viejo community to the north. The proposed roadway would include two northbound and two southbound asphalt concrete lanes with six-foot-wide asphalt concrete bike lanes, curbs and gutters, landscaping, and separated sidewalks. The project would also install storm drainage facilities, water and wastewater conveyance infrastructure, and conduit and pipeline for dry utilities (electric, telephone, cable, fiber, natural gas). Within areas that are known as California tiger salamander (CTS) migration corridors, the roadway design includes measures to keep CTS off the travel lanes and help them pass safely under the roadway.
