Project Description:

  •  The City has an ongoing program to improve mobility for pedestrians and bicyclists throughout the community. 

  • This project will install new Class IV (separated) Bike Lanes and Pedestrian improvements on a 4.6-mile segment of Lynn Rd. between Gainsborough Rd. and S. Reino Rd.  

  • Lynn Road contains sections within both Caltrans right-of-way and City right-of-way; 

  • Within the Caltrans right-of-way at US 101/Lynn Rd. overcrossing, the proposed improvements include roadway restriping to accommodate Class IV bike lanes, replacement of existing barrier on the west side of the bridge with a current standard barrier, installation of new fencing with LED lighting on both sides of bridge, conversion of northbound Lynn Rd. travel lane #3 (outside lane) to a new Class IV bike lane (reducing travel lanes to two lanes), and installation of Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFB’s) with advanced blinking LED signs at uncontrolled crossings.   

  • Within the City’s right-of-way, the project will feature the conversion of the existing Class II buffered bike lanes between S. Reino Rd. and US 101 into Class IV bike lanes, conversion of the existing equestrian trail from Hillcrest Dr. to US 101 northbound on-ramp into a Class IV bike lane, installation of high visibility bike striping and crosswalks, and installation of incomplete segments of sidewalks on Lynn Rd. within the project limits, which are currently not grant funded. On northbound Lynn Rd. between Hillcrest Dr. and Gainsborough Rd. conversion of existing Class II bike lanes to Class IV bike lanes (in the northbound direction), installation of a new pedestrian signal and crosswalk at the southern edge of Hillcrest Dr. and Lynn Rd. intersection and installation of pedestrian ADA curb ramps. The proposed improvements, including the number of travel lanes and the type of bike lanes, will be consistent throughout the project limits.

 Project Highlights and Benefits:  

  • Improvements to cyclist safety with installation of the separated bike lane including bicycle signal head at NB on-ramp, reconstruction of bridge barrier, and installation of new fencing with LED lighting. 

  • Improvement to pedestrian safety by constructing incomplete sidewalk segments increasing the neighborhood pedestrian connectivity.

Project Impacts

The project will: 

  • improve the bicyclists’ safety with installation of separated Class IV bike lanes with flexible delineators. 

  • improve pedestrian safety and connectivity by installing incomplete sidewalk segments within the project limits. 

  • reduce one travel lane on the northbound Lynn Rd./US 101 bridge which will be converted into Class IV protected bike lane. 

Current Status

Currently, the project is pending federal fund authorization and award of Project Initiation Document (PID) phase of the project for Caltrans’ required Project Study Report – Project Development Support (PES-PDS) document.
