Please join us at an Open House hosted by City of Santa Monica for the Stewart and Pennsylvania Avenue Bike and Pedestrian Improvement project. There are two dates you can attend, December 14th or December 18th. There is also an interactive map to review and provide comments online. We were excited to give input to help shape the project to date and look forward to community input to help further build a project that will best serve equitable mobility in a safer, healthy and active Santa Monica. Together we can create a safe and friendly community for everyone.
Project Goal: Walk & Bike Pedestrian improvements for Stewart and Pennsylvania Avenues
This project aims to make improvements that will connect local neighborhoods to transit facilities, bikeways, schools, parks, and employment opportunities. The Land Use and Circulation Element (LUCE), Bicycle Action Plan (BAP), Bergamot Area Plan, and Pedestrian Action Plan all identify Stewart Street and Pennsylvania Avenue to include safety enhancements for pedestrians and bicyclists of all ages and abilities. This project plans to implement those improvements.
Project Elements: • Add new sidewalks, and pedestrian scale lighting on Pennsylvania Avenue between 26th Street and Stewart Street. • Enhance bike facility to a protected bikeway on Stewart Street between Colorado Avenue and Kansas Avenue to accommodate riders of all ages and abilities. • Enhance intersections at Stewart/Nebraska and Colorado/Yale.
We encourage you to check out the interactive map to review the project and provide comment. Upcoming open house information session flyers: • Virginia Avenue Park Library Annex Saturday, December 14, 2019 from 2:30 PM – 5:00 PM • Edison Language Academy Wednesday, December 18, 2019 from 5:30 PM – 8:00 PM
