Old Auburn Road is an incomplete street which carries high vehicular volumes, lacks bicycle, pedestrian and transit infrastructure, and has been identified by the city as an important corridor for all modes of transportation. Community concerns include vehicular speeding, lack of pedestrian crossings, sidewalks, and lighting, high number of collisions, high volume of cut-through traffic and overall safety. Additionally, the irregular, non-perpendicular intersections present visibility, truck/large vehicle turning and bicycle/pedestrian crossing challenges.
The Plan will address the challenging transportation conditions on Old Auburn Road between Sylvan Road and Fair Oaks Boulevard. It will include a community engagement process, evaluation of existing conditions and deficiencies to define community based solutions, address concerns, increase safety and transform Old Auburn Road into a Complete Street. Once complete, the Plan will be used to seek final design and construction funding.
A design consultant firm, Fehr & Peers, has been selected to lead the community engagement and Plan development. Check back with us soon regarding upcoming meetings and opportunities for public/resident input.
