Project Summary: The project will install trees, lighting, updated curb ramps, and repair sidewalk in Chinatown along F, Kern, and Mariposa Streets. Urban Greening elements will also be installed in China Alley.
Details: The project will install improvements to paved pedestrian facilities in Chinatown, improving active transportation and connections to the adjacent planned High-Speed Rail Station. Lighting and greening improvements will also be installed. The proposed improvements are located on: F from Mariposa to Ventura, Kern from G Street to E Street and Mariposa from E Street to G Street. Street trees will be placed approximately every 30’ on F Street, Kern Street and Mariposa. A portion of a green alley will also be funded by this project from Tulare to Kern and Inyo to Ventura. The remaining segment from Kern to Inyo is incorporated into CCI Project #1 (Chinatown Mixed-Use Project at HSR West Entrance). This project achieves several goals of the TCC Program including: reducing greenhouse gas emissions through carbon sequestration, installing facilities that encourage active travel, and increasing the urban tree canopy. The City of Fresno Department of Public Works will provide long-term operations and maintenance of the pedestrian and greening improvements.
