Document Description
The project involves construction of a 10-foot-wide two-way buffered Class IV separated bike path on the west side of Bailey Road for enhanced pedestrian and bicyclist safety. Improvements include narrowing the travel lane widths, a landscape median, roadway, curb, gutter, and sidewalk reconstruction, relocation of existing street lights, and roadway treatment. The existing 5-foot-wide Class II bike lane along the east side of Bailey Road will remain with a 3-foot buffer zone added between the bike lane and sidewalk to separate bike riders and pedestrians. Additionally, the project includes the installation of a new traffic signal at the intersection of Bailey Road with Mary Anne Lane/Placer Drive, modification of existing traffic signals to include separated bike path prioritization, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-compliant curb ramps, ADA-accessible sidewalks, driveway and crosswalk enhancements, and roadway striping. The project will also incorporate stormwater treatment and green infrastructure. Real estate transactions, utility relocations, and temporary traffic control may be necessary. Vegetation trimming and tree removal of approximately 19 landscaping trees may be necessary. The maximum depth of excavation is anticipated to be approximately 4 feet. Best management practices such as storm drain inlet protection will be implemented. Construction is anticipated to start in Spring 2026 and take approximately 120 working days to complete. Night or weekend work may be necessary and will be performed in accordance with local guidelines.
