Project Description: The existing sidewalk along Francisco Boulevard East is utilized daily by pedestrians and bicyclists that must navigate the congestion of fire hydrants and power poles. This project will install an 8 foot wide sidewalk/bike path on Francisco Boulevard East between Vivian Street and the Grand Avenue Bridge providing more room for pedestrians and bicyclists.  Project also includes new roadway safety lighting (LED), landscaping, and drainage improvements.francisco blvd east improvements
