Pacheco Boulevard Improvements - Blum Road to Morello Avenue
Project Information Project Number: 0662-6R4113
Supervisory District: 5
Project Location: Along Pacheco Boulevard from Blum Road to Morello Avenue, within unincorporated Contra Costa County and the City of Martinez.
Project Description: Contra Costa County and the City of Martinez are conducting a joint study to evaluate alternatives to improve Pacheco Boulevard between Blum Road and Morello Avenue. The study is aimed at improving the roadway to meet future capacity needs, as well as, providing accommodations for all users. The project will consider widening of the roadway, intersection configuration, continuous sidewalks, the addition of bike lanes, and coordination with transit companies.
Segment 1 – Blum Road to Arnold Drive Segment 2 – Arnold Drive to Arthur Road, including realignment at the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad tracks Segment 3 – Arthur Road to Camino del Sol Segment 4 – Camino del Sol to Morello Avenue
Purpose and Need: Pacheco Boulevard is a north-south arterial running parallel to the I-680 freeway from Concord Avenue/Chilpancingo Parkway to the south to Court Street and Marina Vista Avenue to the north. Widening of this segment of Pacheco Boulevard will improve the road capacity to serve local trips between downtown Martinez and the commercial areas along Contra Costa Boulevard. The existing roadway has limited segments of sidewalks and bike lanes. The project will look at "complete street" implementation by providing continuous sidewalks and bike lanes throughout the corridor.
