PARTNERS City of Long Beach, The California Endowment
COMPLETION DATE 2016
The road diet and safety enhancement project began as a road resurfacing project that grew in scope as residents and local stakeholders expressed concerns of traffic speeds and accessibility for pedestrian and cyclists. City Fabrick quickly worked with community members and City Officials to redesign the roadway to add buffered bike lanes (the first fully dedicated bicycle facility in Central Long Beach), pedestrian enhancements including continental crosswalks and curb extensions and infrastructure for future controlled intersections. These improvements were completed in the Spring of 2016 and is already planned to become the backbone of the future bike network according to the City’s Bicycle Master Plan.
