Complete and Sustainable Streets Corridor Plan
Help Make Creston Road Safe and Convenient for Everyone
The focus is Creston Road between South River Road and Niblick Road. View a location map [PDF]. The project is made possible with funding from a Caltrans Sustainable Transportation Planning Grant. A consultant team has been selected to work closely with community members and the City to develop the plan.
The resulting plan will include designs and strategies to:
- Make Creston Road safer and easier for school children and adults to walk or ride a bike.
- Improve conditions for transit, motorists and businesses.
- Beautify the corridor with streetscape enhancements.
- Coordinate circulation and access with existing and future land uses and projects.
Final Design Approved by City Council - February 2018
Creston Road Corridor: Preferred Alternative Plan, Active Transportation Program (ATP) Grant, and Final Design Services approved by the City Council
The proposed Creston Road conceptual plan, as presented to City Council on February 6, 2018, was developed with significant input from the community through several different workshop events. City staff and the consultant team have reviewed the existing conditions of the corridor extensively, and translated the input received along with technical data and professional expertise to develop the conceptual plan.
There are significant issues along the Creston corridor that need to be addressed, including:
- In many sections the pavement needs some form of rehabilitation.
- The two travel lanes in the worst section have had a preliminary surface treatment but much work remains.
- Many sections of the roadway also lack curb, gutter and sidewalks and the public was virtually unanimous that this should be addressed.
- Access to some of the businesses along the corridor are problematic and need to be addressed.
- Traffic signals and crosswalks are important and also need to be installed or improved.
- There are parking lots that exit with cars backing directly into the roadway that should be made safer.
