Project Summary: The Annadale Mode Shift project will help encourage residents in southwest Fresno to utilize active transportation. Whether it is biking to West Fresno Elementary and Middle School, walking to an appointment at Clinica Sierra Vista or Mary Ella Brown Community Center, or linking up with the bike lane on Elm Ave. to head downtown, the Annadale Mode Shift project will help close gaps in active transportation infrastructure.
Details: The project will install approximately 1,154 linear feet of sidewalk, approximately 1,196 linear feet of Class II bike lanes, and signage for approximately 1,085 linear feet of Class III bike lanes on East Annadale Avenue between South M.L.K. Jr Boulevard and South Elm Avenue. The project will close a gap of pedestrian path on the street that links an elementary school, community building, health clinic, and current and proposed affordable housing sites. The City of Fresno Department of Public Works will provide long-term operations and maintenance of the improvements.
In conjunction, Self-Help Enterprises will use leverage funds to conduct virtual public outreach to educate residents and other community members on the transportation options, and to connect them with existing subsidy programs such as Taxi Scrip and Handy Ride and other City of Fresno Transit programs.
The project is planning to receive building permits in November 2020 and also to start construction in November 2020. There is an anticipated construction schedule of approximately 3 months, giving an anticipated construction completion date of February 2021.
We are interested in how to hold virtual community events to help promote active transportation, as well as other transportation services available to neighborhood residents. If you would like to be involved in outreach, contact us with the email form link below.
