Phelps Avenue Improvements Phase II
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
Existing conditions require more than routine maintenance due to broken and bumpy surfaces, potholes, ruts and loose aggregate, which pose trip, slip and fall hazards for pedestrians, bicyclists, vehicles and the flow of traffic. If the project is implemented this road will require little maintenance for many years after construction and less City funds to maintain the road. Improvements include continuing the rehabilitation of the entire segment of Phelps Ave (first phase completed 2020), grinding or existing 0.63 miles of a roadway, placement of AC pavement, adjustment of existing manhole covers and utility lids, installation of striping, a new high-visibility crosswalk, and 2 new ADA compliant curb ramps. Improvements will produce smooth well-marked lanes creating safer conditions for pedestrians, bicyclists, vehicles and the flow of traffic, produce good traction and dewater quickly and efficiently, creating fewer delays and accidents from rainwater buildup and road hazards. The project does not encroach on Caltrans right of way, nor utility relocations. A pedestrian easement may be required for construction of concrete curb ramp and sidewalk landing.
