Project Background

The project is located on Hillcrest Drive between Moorpark Road and Lynn Road. The work includes construction of an incomplete sidewalk segment on the north ride of the street from McCloud Avenue to Lynn Road, and the conversion of a travel lane in each direction to a Class IV bike lane. 

 

Concept Map 

Class IV bike lanes are separated bikeways, often referred to as separated bike lanes or cycle tracks because they provide an bikeway for the exclusive use by bicycles. These lanes cannot be used by pedestrians or vehicles, and must include a physical separation between the automobile lane. These separators may include flexible posts, grade separation, railings, or planters. For more information on Class IV bike lanes, please view the Class IV Bikeway Guidance from the Department of Transportation

Project Timeframe

The project is currently in the preliminary design phase, and the feedback and plans will be presented to Traffic & Transportation Advisory Commission and City Council in Fall 2024 prior to advertisement for the construction bid process. 

Budget and Funding

The total project budget is $2,890,000. The current budget consist of $2,783,800 grant funding and $106,000 City funds:

Project Highlights

  • Restriping of the roadway will install Class IV separated bike lane on both sides of the roadway and provide a safer route for cyclists. 

  • Installation of the incomplete sidewalk will provide the neighborhood pedestrians connectivity and improve pedestrian safety. 

  • This project will improve safety since Hillcrest Drive is currently the City’s fourth highest bicycle collision segment with 22 collisions in a five-year period of 2013 through 2017. 

Project Impacts

  • The project will convert the lane #3 (outside lane) in both direction into Class IV (separated) bike lanes. 

  • The conversion along this portion of Hillcrest Drive is feasible due to excess vehicle capacity for the volume of vehicles served as this segment has a roadway vehicle capacity of 55,300 vehicles/day (VPD) with a current average daily traffic volume of 19,000 VPD. 

  • The conversion of one travel lane to Class IV Bike Lane in each direction results in a remaining roadway capacity of 36,800 VPD, which is more than ample to serve existing and future traffic volume projections.
