Multi-Modal Transportation Proposals
PROPOSAL: S. ETON RD. CORRIDOR IMPROVEMENTS – LINCOLN AVE. TO 14 MILE RD.
The Multi-Modal Board has been studying potential improvements to the entire S. Eton Rd. corridor from Maple Rd. to 14 Mile Rd. Previous discussions at the Board level have resulted in a recommendation to the City Commission that includes:
- A pedestrian island at Maple Rd.
- Narrowing of S. Eton Rd. from Maple Rd. to Yosemite Blvd. to allow an improvement to the sidewalk on the west side of the street.
- Narrowing of S. Eton Rd. from Yosemite Blvd. to Villa Ave. to allow for wider sidewalks, as well as a green parkway with new street trees between the sidewalk and the road (on-street parking would be eliminated).
- Removal of parking on the southbound side of the street, from Villa Ave. to Lincoln Ave., and using this paved area to install a two-way bike path separated from vehicle traffic by the use of a raised buffer.
The City Commission, while aware of the above proposal, has not taken any action on it to date. Attached is an aerial map north of Lincoln, and an aerial map south of Lincoln.
The Board has passed a motion recommending changes to S. Eton Rd. from Maple to 14 Mile Rd.
The cross-section shown represents what the street would look like facing north. Features include:
- The installation of an 8-footwide concrete bicycle path, constructed on the right of way between the existing Citystreet trees and the west edge of the road. The plan would feature a dashed yellow line down the middle to encourage two-way traffic. A 2-foot wide green space would remain between the new path and the existing street. The Board discussed landscaping alternatives to grass, however, no decision was made. Each driveway approach would need to be reconstructed from the existing City sidewalk to th west curb i order to accommodate the new bike path. (The City sidewalk would remain as is.)
- The existing street would generally be left as is, except that a white line would be painted at 8 feet off the west curb, encouraging parking for southbound traffic. The existing street will get the white line noted, but also a double yellow line will be added to help clarify two through travel lanes moved to the east side of the street. The current restriction banning overnight parking from 2 a.m. to 6a.m. would be removed to encourage use of this area by adjacent residents.
- Curb extensions (bumpouts) would be installed at each intersection on the west side of the street in the area of the parking lane, to reduce the width of the street in these areas, thereby improving pedestrian safety at each crosswalk.
