Document Description
The project will replace the existing crosswalk and install a High Intensity Activated Crosswalk (HAWK) system to increase safety of pedestrians crossing Grantland Avenue going to the school. All the necessary appurtenant electrical and controllers to operate the signal will be installed as part of the work. Wiring will be installed underground in a 24" x 36" deep trench. New signage and striping will be necessary on Grantland Ave near Herndon-Barstow Elementary School between Bullard Ave and Tenaya Ave. The crosswalk will be moved approximately 50 feet south of the existing location to improve visibility and safety of the crosswalk, which meets the California Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (CA MUTCD) standards for installation of a Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon. The project will also include widening a section of the road to support the crosswalk striping and building a new ADA compliant, curb ramp and new sidewalk with curb & gutter, which would be aligned with and connecting to the existing sidewalk at the south end of the school. A new curb ramp and necessary pavement and concrete work will be installed on the existing median and east side of the road to the new location of the crossing. Miscellaneous clearing and grabbing and removal of trees will be necessary to avoid obstructing visibility of the crosswalk. Right of way acquisition of parcel APN 50403082 is necessary to accommodate the improvements on the west side of the crosswalk. Existing flashing beacons located north and south of the existing crosswalk will be removed with all the appurtenant wiring. Utility poles will be relocated. A fire hydrant will be relocated. New piping will be installed in a 24" wide by 48" deep trench. All work will be within previously disturbed land.
