Work on Telegraph Ave Pedestrian + Bike Improvements

The city will begin pedestrian and bike improvement construction on Telegraph, 29th to 45th this week. Funded by a Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) grant, the city will install RRFBs at 41st, 43rd and 44th, and a raised concrete median refuge at 43rd and 44th. The project also includes the installation of buffered bike lanes and a road diet on Telegraph from 29th St to West MacArthur (the gap between Temescal and KONO bike lanes) and the installation of a raised concrete plaza area on the southern part of the new Shattuck Ave pedestrian plaza.

The planned order of work will be:

1. Bus islands/curb ramps

2. Buffered bike lane striping

3. Rapid Repeating Flashing Beacons (RRFB)

4. Plaza at 45th
