City of Salinas Bardin Road Safe Routes To School Project

Background:

The City received a Federal Active Transportation (ATP) grant in August 2016 to improve Bardin Road, from Williams Road past Bardin Elementary School; and a portion of East Alisal Street, in front of Hartnell College East Campus.  This program aims to encourage active living through appropriate transportation systems designed for pedestrians and bicyclists.  The program also focuses on improving routes to school in order to create safer streets that improve active travel to and from school for parents, children, and the general public.

Project Description:

The Bardin Safe Routes to School Project will include the installation of bulb-outs, a road diet on Bardin Road, new crosswalks with Rapid Flashing Beacons, buffered bike lanes, ADA pedestrian Ramps, street lights and pedestrian lighting, meandering sidewalks, curb and gutter improvements, a full road reconstruction, traffic signal modifications and loop replacement at Williams Road/Bardin Road, and two roundabouts at East Alisal Street/Bardin Road and Sconberg Parkway/Alisal Road.  The new road with safety features on crosswalks, new lighting at crosswalks, new bike lanes and pedestrian ramps will create a safer and better community.  The two Roundabouts will steer drop off and pick up routes for Bardin Elementary School to a safer and efficient path.

Project Limits:

The project limits are Bardin Roa, from Williams Road to 1000 feet south of Sconberg Parkway; and East Alisal Street, from Tampa Street to Bardin Road

Project Status:

The Design for improvements on Bardin Road and Alisal Street is underway. 
Construction is to begin in Summer 2019.
