The city of Davis announces completion of road improvements on First Street, and work on the next big project — the Fifth Street corridor — will start in early to mid-October.

First Street between A and G streets now features an improved street surface, additional bike lanes, upgraded sidewalk ramps for disability compliance and improved traffic circulation at First and B streets.

New street symbols include shared lane markings or “sharrows,” which signify that bikes and cars share a lane, with bicyclists allowed to use the full lane. There are also dual buffered bike lanes, which provide separation between the car and bike lanes, with buffers on either side of the bike lane for safety from parked cars and moving vehicles.

Work on the Fifth Street corridor between A and L streets will begin next month. The City Council awarded the contract to Vanguard Construction Services of Livermore. Funding is mostly from grants from the Sacramento Area Council of Governments, Highway Safety Improvement Program and Community Development block grants, with some local funds.

Between B and L streets, Fifth Street will be reduced from four lanes to two to accommodate new bike and center turn lanes. The project also will add access ramps at intersection corners and provide additional striped crosswalks, street lights and pedestrian-activated signals at the intersections at C and J streets, a city news release said.

Traffic signals at A, B and L streets also will be upgraded, and new signals will be installed at F and G streets to accommodate the new lane configurations.

Construction will begin at A Street, working toward L. There will be some lane and sidewalk closures when concrete work is being done on the corners, but full street closures are not expected, the news release said.

The city has a website to provide information on this and other roadwork, updating it as work progresses. Visit http://traffic.cityofdavis.org.
