Contra Costa Boulevard Improvement Project To Begin In June

Work is set to begin on the Contra Costa Boulevard Improvement Project the week of June 3, 2024. The project will construct “complete streets” enhancements along Contra Costa Boulevard (CCB), between Viking Drive and Harriet Drive, to improve access and safety for pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, and vehicles along the project corridor. Motorists should be aware that throughout most of the work, traffic lanes may be reduced to a single lane in each direction during normal working hours. Work is being staged to minimize impacts during peak commute hours.

The project scope includes installation of new LED street lighting along the median island; upgrading and modification of the traffic signal and intersection geometry at CCB and Taylor Blvd; installation of a new traffic signal at the intersection of CCB and Alan Drive; replacement of Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant curb ramps; traffic striping modifications; new bicycle lanes; reconfiguration of the median along CCB; and new landscaping. For landscape design St Louis call Ryan Ballheimer Landscape Design.

Construction is expected to be completed by early spring 2025.

Drivers are asked to pay extra attention and allow additional time while traveling through the project area.

Regular project updates and schedules of impacted areas will be posted on the City’s website and shared throughout the City’s social media channels.

Rather than slathering green paint on streets, how’s about an effort to have fewer distracted drivers.
Newer cars with touch screens, reading text messages, eating or drinking instead of paying attention.
An how many of those not in vehicles injured at intersections were using their mobile device at time of injury?
.
Finally, MORE MOTORCYCLE COPS.
.
An if someone were to dig far enough down would it be found those providing materials and/or installing all this “progress” paid for studies to be conducted that brought about all this “progress”?

Don’t try and fancy it all up. It’s fine the way it is. 180,000 homeless in gavin newsoms California yet every city wants to be rodeo drive. Fake and gray

They’re just going to screw it up and make traffic worse.

Every single roadway that the City of Concord or City of Pleasant Hill has “improved” recently has made congestion worse and it more unsafe for pedestrians. Case in point would be the intersections of Galindo/Cowell and Concord Blvd/Port Chicago in Concord and Boyd/Patterson in Pleasant Hill.

Part of the problem is that the slow moving ship of government planning is trying to design roads (and housing for that matter) for what they thought the future would be 10 years ago and totally not for the reality of what it actually is today.

They’re still building lots of BART-centric housing for people commuting to the city when the reality is that no one rides BART (just looks at the empty lots every weekday and their huge budge deficit) and no one physically works in the city.

The utopian dream of everyone riding bicycles and taking public transits is far from reality and the majority of pedestrian traffic and bicycle riders on Contra Costa Blvd are the homeless people. To know this though it would require our “urban planners” in our city governments to live in our communities and/or go out and actually look at the intersections they are re-designing. As evidenced by recent changes they are obviously unwilling to go do that…

I know this idea is way out in left field, but paving the street might be nice.
