Alessandro Blvd. & Elsworth St. Intersection Improvement Project

The Alessandro Boulevard and Elsworth Street Intersection Improvement project will improve safety and efficiency and accommodate all users by upgrading the existing traffic signals at Alessandro Boulevard/Elsworth Street including removing median-mounted traffic signal poles, improving vehicular head placement, removing steep cross-gutters and replacing them with catch basins connected to an existing storm drain system, implementing advanced dilemma zone protection, installing Americans with Disability Act (ADA) compliant pedestrian access ramps, and  new signing and striping. 

In 2012, the City applied and successfully was awarded $760,500 (90% of the estimated project costs) from Caltrans under the federal Highway Safety Improvement Program, with the balance coming from local matching funds.  The design was completed in 2015 and the City is awaiting Caltrans authorization prior to starting construction.  Caltrans is expected to authorize by December 2015, allowing the City to advertise the project in January 2016.  Construction is expected to take approximately 6 months.
