Downtown Project Goals:
The Downtown Project will focus on upgrading the infrastructure – below and above ground – and improve the overall flow and safety of car, bike and pedestrian travel in the downtown area.
Public Engagement: Development of the project will include a significant public outreach and engagement process to help determine the scope of the project. This includes participation of a Design Advisory Committee. Community members will have opportunities to participate in a public engagement process, through stakeholder meetings, public workshops and City Council Meetings. Throughout the engagement process, design engineers will develop conceptual plans that consider stakeholder feedback.
Phase I: Completed in 2020 and included pavement repair, upgraded ADA curb ramps, rehabilitated sewer and storm drain system along West Blithedale, Gardner, Corte Madera, Sunnyside and Throckmorton.
Phase II: This phase will focus primarily on the Downtown curb ramp improvements located outside of the Lytton Square and The Depot Plaza areas. These curb ramps will be upgraded to meet current ADA standards which may require eliminating a few of the existing parking stalls.
Phase II of the project will consist of the design and construction of approx. 17 curb ramps locating on E. Blithedale Ave, Throckmorton Ave, Corte Madera Ave, and Sunnyside Ave to be installed during Summer 2021 (blue). The remaining curb ramps (orange) located at the intersections of Throckmorton Ave/Bernard St and Miller Ave/Sunnyside Ave will be designed in 2021 and constructed in Summer 2022. Additional paving, and pipeline improvements will be included with the Remaining Phases of work.
The Downtown Project will include significant public outreach and engagement to determine the scope of the project, to meet the community's needs. This will include stakeholder meetings, public workshops, and a citizen-led Design Advisory Committee.
