Recommended Action:

Recommended action

Adopt a Resolution establishing a midblock crosswalk on Santa Rosa Avenue (Road #7802) at its junction with Butterfly Lane (non-County), Post Mile 11.71, and accepting the crossing improvements into the County’s road maintenance inventory. (Third District)



Executive Summary:

Residential development of 3310 Santa Rosa Avenue (DRH14-0001) was approved with conditions on March 15, 2015. Per Transportation and Public Works (TPW) Condition #59, the developer was required to construct a midblock crossing on its frontage with Santa Rosa Avenue. Revised plans were approved by the Director of TPW on August 26, 2019, and construction was completed under encroachment permit ENC17-0169. Sonoma County Public Infrastructure (formerly TPW) is requesting the Board adopt a Resolution establishing the midblock crosswalk on Santa Rosa Avenue (Road No. 7802) at post mile 11.71 and accepting it into The County’s road maintenance inventory.



Section 21106 of the California Vehicle Code authorizes the Board to establish crosswalks between intersections by resolution.  Due to the distance between existing intersection crossings and the location of northbound and southbound bus stops in the vicinity of the project at 3310 Santa Rosa Avenue, Sonoma County Public Infrastructure required the developer to install an enhanced pedestrian crossing. The intent of the improvement is to make crossings safer for those who would otherwise need to walk up to a half mile to access buses travelling in the preferred direction.

Public road improvements, including an enhanced midblock pedestrian crosswalk, were accepted as complete by Public Infrastructure on April 18, 2022.

Public Infrastructure recommends that the Board establish the midblock crosswalk pursuant to California Vehicle Code Section 21106 and accept the improvements into the County’s road maintenance inventory.
