The Project consists of widening and improving the Esplanade Corridor as a multi-modal, “Complete Streets” facility between Eaton Road to the northerly curb returns of the Leora Court/Nord Highway intersection (approximately 0.7 miles in length). The work will increase Esplanade from two to four lanes and includes bicycle, pedestrian, and transit improvements and a raised, landscaped, and irrigated median.
The Project will construct a new bridge to connect the existing sections of Notre Dame Boulevard over Little Chico Creek. The new structure will accommodate two 12-foot travel lanes separated by a 6-foot-wide center median, eight-foot bike lanes, a five-foot sidewalk on the west side and an eight-foot multi-use path on the east side. The new bridge is anticipated to be a multi-span structure, approximately 100 feet long and 56 feet wide.
