The reconstruction of Ralston Road is an ambitious two-phase project to widen this important corridor and provide sustainable infrastructure for the area. Phase One of the project which addressed roadway, accessibility, pavement conditions, and aesthetic upgrades from Upham to Yukon Streets is completed.
Phase Two, which is funded through a voter approved bond measure, will encompass pavement reconstruction from Yukon to Garrison streets as well as widening, adding safety and drainage improvements, bringing existing curb ramps and sidewalks into ADA compliance, replacing aging traffic signals, and incorporating landscaping to create a vibrant urban streetscape.
Highlights of the project include:
Relocate utilities and make drainage improvements
Replace aging traffic signals
Widen traffic lanes and add safety features
Install new ADA-compliant curb ramps and upgrade gutters on both sides of the roadway
Construct 8’ detached or 10’ attached sidewalks
Add landscaping to create a new urban streetscape
