Huitt-Zollars provided streetscape improvements along Second Street, including the reconfiguration for two-way traffic from Avenida Cesar Chavez (Bridge Blvd) to Iron Avenue. The project included the addition of bicycle lanes, traffic calming treatments such as bulb-outs, storm drain evaluation and permanent signage and striping improvements. Geometric improvements included realignment of Second Street to flatten a horizontal reverse curve. The realignment required additional right-of-way. Creative design solutions were developed at each location and eliminated costly drainage improvements to relocate drop inlets. Mid-block bulb-outs assist in slowing traffic by narrowing the roadway and providing on-street parking designations. Shared Lane Markings are provided due to limited street width.
