Sharon Road sidewalk

The Sharon Road Sidewalk project is scheduled for construction award at the May 10, 2022, City Council meeting. Project updates and construction schedules on this project page will be updated at least one week before starting work. 

On Dec. 7, 2021, the City Council approved designs for a 5-foot wide sidewalk along the 2100 block of Sharon Road. The approved design also includes 10 to 11-foot travel lanes within the project limits. Thereafter, staff finalized the project’s construction drawings and solicited construction bids in April 2022. 

On Jan. 26, 2021, the City Council selected a raised concrete sidewalk as the preferred alternative on Sharon Road, from Alameda de las Pulgas to Altschul Avenue. The project was then on hold until December 2021 due to litigation.

Project goals

The project aims to improve pedestrian safety and the connection to La Entrada Middle School. It also includes a new 15 miles per hour school zone speed limit.

Currently, the shoulder of the roadway is only partially paved and unsuitable for wheelchairs. During winter months, rain creates large puddles that pedestrians try to avoid by stepping into the street.

City staff collected feedback from residents and La Entrada parents throughout the year, leading to a recommendation by the Complete Streets Commission before the City Council action in January 2021.
