A Proposed Bicycle and Pedestrian Bridge Across Highway 101 


The development of a bicycle and pedestrian overcrossing project, which would span US Highway 101, south of Steele Lane and north of College Avenue, has been pursued by the City Council since its approval to conduct a feasibility study in 2007.  The overcrossing is a high priority in the City’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan.
The City, along with a partnership with Sonoma County Transportation Authority (SCTA) and Caltrans completed the Project Initial Document (PID). The PID evaluated design variations and developed project evaluation documentation. In addition, the PID documents identified the project scope, schedule, and support costs necessary to complete the needed studies for the Project Approval and Environmental Document (PA&ED) phase. 

In June 2017, BKF Engineers was hired to complete the PA&ED phase for the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) clearance, subsequent to the PID phase.

This multi-year project will continue to work with Caltrans to develop and complete the Project Approval and Environmental Document (PA&ED) phase of work. The PA&ED phase will identify the Caltrans approved alignment through preliminary engineering and meet environmental clearance requirements. Once the PA&ED phase is completed, the next phase will enter the Project Plans, Specifications, and Estimation (PS&E).
