The Project is intended to provide non-motorized transportation and recreational access in Manila via a Class I bike path (shared use path). SR 255 has no developed facilities for bicycles or pedestrians and the drainage ditches on both sides of the highway force non-motorized users to travel on the highway shoulder. The project would link critical activity centers within the community, including schools and residential areas.
The project would provide a shared use path along the west side of SR 255 beginning near the Dean Street/Pacific Avenue intersection (Post Mile 3.64) and terminating approximately 250 feet north of the Carlson Avenue intersection (Post Mile 4.24). The path would provide a non-motorized alternative to SR 255, link neighborhoods and enhance access for users. The path would be designed as a paved, 10-foot-wide surface with two, two-foot wide shoulders, situated at least five feet from the edge of a standard eight-foot wide shoulder along SR 255. The path
alignment would maximize separation from vehicular traffic to provide for the best user experience, and to accommodate highway operations and maintenance activities. Crosswalks would be provided at the Lupin Avenue and Carlson Avenue path-road crossings. The path's edge of shoulder will be at least 30 feet from the edge of traveled way along SR 255 except for near the three intersections and crosswalks.
