Document Description
The project consists of constructing a new pedestrian crossing facility across Olinda Road approximately 70 feet east of Olinda Elementary School. The pedestrian crossing facility will consist of a crosswalk, a speed table, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant curb ramps, and rectangular rapid flashing beacons (RRFBs). The existing deficient crosswalk located approximately 165 feet east of Olinda Elementary School will be removed. The new eight-foot-wide crosswalk will be striped with high-visibility yellow traffic paint on top of a 20-foot-wide speed table. RRFBs will be constructed at each end of the crossing facility. Four curbside parking spots will be removed when the widened curb ramps are installed, however, two parking spots will be added with the removal of the deficient crosswalk. The existing sidewalk will be demolished and excavated to 2 feet, and the new wider sidewalk and curb ramps will be installed. The locations of the RRFBs will be excavated to 6 feet to install the RRFB foundation. Existing asphalt in the location of the speed table will be excavated to one foot, followed by the application of hot mix asphalt and striping for the crosswalk. Construction is anticipated to occur during the summer of 2026, and will take approximately 20 days to complete. Construction will have no impact on school hours. No night or weekend work is anticipated. Real Estate transactions, utility relocations, temporary traffic control, and tree and vegetation trimming and removal may be necessary.
