Project Description

The City has an ongoing program to construct sidewalks and bike lanes throughout the community. The Public Works Department maintains a priority list that ranks missing sidewalk locations based on several factors, including pedestrian traffic volumes, proximity to schools, and road classifications. The incomplete sidewalk on the west side of Rancho Road between Thousand Oaks Boulevard and Haaland Drive, which would provide a direct path between Thousand Oaks Boulevard and the Thousand Oaks Transportation Center (TOTC), is a top priority location.

Project Timeframe

The Final Design for the project is complete and was recently presented to the community at the October 16, 2019 Traffic Commission Meeting and can be viewed here.

Construction activities are scheduled to begin Summer 2021 and the project is planned to be completed by the end of 2022.


Project Funding

The total estimated project cost is $2,200,000 and is funded primarily with federal grants and supplemented with required City match funds.

Project Benefits 

Construction elements of the project will include continuous ADA compliant sidewalks on both sides of Rancho Road, bike lane striping along both directions of Rancho Road, separated bicycle crossings (commonly referred to as Class IV bike lanes), new traffic signal at Rancho Road and Southbound 101 Ramps, and will modified the traffic signals at Rancho Road and Northbound 101 On Ramp.
