Project Location:

Boronda Road between Dartmouth Way and Hemingway Drive.

Project Description:

On May 16, 2017, the City Council approved the roundabout concept along East Boronda Road at the following intersections: McKinnon Street, El Dorado Drive, Natividad Road, Independence Boulevard, and Hemingway Drive.  The roundabouts will be constructed in conjunction with the East Boronda Road Widening Project (between Dartmouth Way and Independence Boulevard).

The project will widen East Boronda Road into a four-lane roadway with landscaped median, and bike lanes.  The existing bridge over Gabilan Creek (near Independence Boulevard) will also be widened to accommodate the four-lane roadway with bike lanes and sidewalks.  Construction of the roundabout at Hemingway Drive may be added to the scope of work to this project or may be built as a separate project by the developer within the Central Area of the Future Growth Area.

Project Update:

The widening of East Boronda Road will occur in three phases. The first phase of the project would include widening of East Boronda Road from just east of Dartmouth Way to approximately 1,900 feet east of McKinnon Street for a total length of approximately 3,500 feet. It would also include a roundabout at the intersection of McKinnon Street and East Boronda Road. Existing agricultural and roadside drainage ditches situated along the north side of East Boronda Road would be relocated to the north to accommodate the roadway widening.

The second phase of the project would continue the widening of east Boronda Road from the Phase 1 limit to approximately 1,100 feet east of Natividad Road. It would also include roundabouts at the intersections of El Dorado Drive and Natividad Road.

The remainder of the improvements including the widening of the bridge crossing Gabilan Creek, and the construction of a roundabout at the intersection of Independence Boulevard and East Boronda Road would be constructed as the last phase of the project.

Construction of a roundabout at Hemmingway Dive may be added to the scope of work to this project at any of its phases, or may be built as a separate project by the developer.   

The Project’s field surveys have been completed, and environmental work is currently underway. The detailed design phase will start in early 2018, with construction for the Phase 1 work to start in late summer 2018 pending environmental clearances from federal and state agencies.
