Workshop targets ideas for Richards underpass improvements

From page A4 | March 11, 2014 |

Potential improvements to the Richards Boulevard underpass from Olive Drive to First Street are the subject of a public meeting planned for Saturday, March 15, at the John Natsoulas Gallery, 521 First St. in downtown Davis. The meeting will run from 1 to 3 p.m.

The city of Davis is partnering with three local business groups — the Davis Chamber of Commerce, Davis Downtown and the Yolo County Visitors Bureau — in this private/public collaboration. The effort has been supported by contributions from several companies, including the Buzz Oates Group of Companies and Cunningham Engineering.

The meeting will feature Roger Berry, a Yolo County artist and designer, along with project designers and engineers who will present several proposals for the featured site. Participants will then tour the existing site with informed docents and return for a workshop.

Improvements envisioned would meet many existing community plans and would be integral in the success of two economic development projects: a planned hotel/conference center and the UC Davis-Downtown Gateway District.

The Richards underpass, was built in 1917 and is recognized as a historic landmark. Improving safety and appearance to the Richards underpass, while maintaining its historic value, has been at the forefront of designers’ and engineers’ minds as they visualized proposals for site improvements.

Potential improvements include a bike tunnel on the east side of the Richards underpass, a bridge with a modern Davis Arch for pedestrians and cyclists, additional lanes at the top of Olive Drive and First Street, lighting for increased visibility, increased downtown parking opportunities, artwork, signage and modern design to showcase the historic underpass, and landscape design in partnership with the UC Davis Arboretum.

To RSVP, contact Laura Tomasello at 530-756-5160 or arch@davischamber.com.
