Walnut Street Road Diet

The following is a general description for Preliminary Design services for the Walnut Street (SR 32) Road Diet (Project), which proposes various safety improvements from the from the intersection of West 1st Street to the intersection of West 9th Street. The Project will convert a 0.25-mile segment of the existing 5 lane corridor, from West 1st Street to West 4th Street, into 2 lanes of vehicle traffic, a center bi-directional left-turn lane, and 2 buffered bike lanes. The reconfiguration will include a 0.25-mile segment of transitional striping from West 5th Street to West 9th Street, including a lane drop and buffered bike lanes. Safety improvements also include various signage updates, and retrofitted signal hardware, high visibility crosswalks, and replacement of ADA curb ramps at the signalized intersections of West 2nd Street, West 3rd Street, and West 5th Street. The Project will also include removal of existing striping and pavement markings, and will place a slurry seal, prior to installation of new roadway striping.
