Here are some comments your neighbors have already submitted to the traffic engineers. If you'd like to add to these, please email dutytraffic@walnut-creek.org and CC larkeyparkneighborsunited@gmail.com There is a pedestrian walkway being proposed down 2nd Ave.

  • How will a straight line be made for the walkway on a jagged 2nd Ave

  • Which side of the road (north or south side) is best suited for the pedestrian walkway?

  • How can you ensure it’s a pedestrian-only walkway?

  • Can “sharrows” be used to encourage experienced cyclists to ride in the middle of the road?

  • Can you provide an example of a pedestrian walkway elsewhere?

  • Will the walkway be protected? ex: raised bumps, flexible stanchion, other

  • Will there be any construction? If so, what?

  • Once started, how long will the pedestrian walkway and other improvements take to complete?

  • Is there a method to limit speeding on 2nd Ave? ex: painted roadway MPH limit, Solar Radar Speed Sign, share the road signs, speed humps, other?


Point your phone camera at the code at 5 pm on Monday to get the link.
