California Street Road Diet

California Street Road Diet Project FlyerThe California Street Road Diet project will improve travel along California Street for pedestrians, bicyclists, and vehicles. California Street improvements will be made at various locations between Alpine Avenue and Eighth Street, including replacement of sections of curbs, gutters and sidewalks, signal improvements, and the addition of bike lanes.

Four miles of bicycle facilities will be added along California Street from Alpine Avenue to Eighth Street, and on Eighth Street from California
Street to El Dorado Street.

These improvements will transform California Street into a complete street that will accommodate all modes of travel as envisioned in the City’s Bicycle Master Plan.
