The project will provide safer access to La Entrada Middle School with a new sidewalk on the north side of Sharon Road from Alameda de las Pulgas to Altschul Avenue.
The existing site is partially paved and lacks a continuous accessible walking path. This presents a challenge for pedestrians, bicyclists and vehicles navigating the area. Additionally, rain creates large puddles next to the street, which forces pedestrians into the travel lane.
On January 26, 2021, City Council authorized the design of a raised concrete sidewalk, removal of on-street parking along northern Sharon Road (from Alameda de las Pulgas to Altschul Avenue) and creation of a 15 mile per hour zone.
City staff will begin the design of a raised concrete sidewalk for construction before the start of the upcoming school year.
