Plans for Main Street Streetscape Project go to Salinas City Council

Plans and specifications for the Main Street Streetscape Project are being brought before the Salinas City Council for council members to approve and authorize issuance of the Invitation to Bidders.

The meeting will be held on Oct. 22 at the Salinas Rotunda on Lincoln Avenue.

The city said the project, which is one of the first steps in the Downtown Vibrancy Plan, is preparing for construction. Final documents have been finished and are awaiting approval.

The goal of the Downtown Vibrancy Plan is to restore activity, commerce and vitality to downtown Salinas, according to the city. The city said the plan consists of four themes: creating a destination downtown, managing parking resources, building the heart of Salinas and stimulating development activity.

Some of the features the Main Street Streetscape Project will include are:

A more pedestrian-friendly environment through ADA compliant sidewalks and alleyways; changes to crosswalks and public amenities to create a more pedestrian-friendly atmosphere.
Changes to lighting that are expected to provide safety and decoration.
Amenities that include a district identity arch, new trees, more green space and furniture.

The city is also planning to improve two-way traffic circulation, make changes to parking and traffic signals and add new bicycle facilities. Public art is not part of this project, but the city said it will come in a later phase.
