Project Benefits

The project makes the bridge safer for pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists per below:

The new sidewalk with protective railing added to the bridge deck increases pedestrian safety and provides easier and faster access crossing the bridge.

Widening the bridge allowed for widening the bike lanes and provides increased bicyclist safety crossing the bridge.

Signal systems and intersection access improvements were made at the intersections of Fairoaks Avenue with Kifer Road and Evelyn Avenue, further enhancing access across the bridge for all modes of transportation.

Comprehensive improvements to the bridge structure now meet current seismic standards and extend the service life of the existing bridge deck. The enhanced and upgraded structure results in a more visually pleasing design.

Upgrades on Hendy Avenue improve mobility and visibility under the bridge.
