Fulton Street Pedestrian Scramble

A pedestrian scramble is a type of traffic signal movement that temporarily stops all vehicular traffic, thereby allowing pedestrians to cross an intersection in every direction, including diagonally, at the same time. The 1-page document below shows how to safely use a pedestrian scramble.

What is Senate Bill 1 (SB 1)?
On April 28, 2017, SB 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017 was signed into law by the Governor and established a newly created “Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Account” (RMRA). Funding for SB1 comes from increases in per gallon fuel excise taxes, diesel fuel sales taxes, and vehicle registration fees. RMRA will provide an estimated $54 billion statewide over the next decade to address deferred maintenance needs on both the state highway system and local road systems. RMRA will provide an estimated $1.5 billion annually to cities and counties for maintenance and rehabilitation of local streets and roads. The City of Fresno is projected to receive $3 million in the 2017-18 fiscal year and $8.8 million for the 2018-19 fiscal year.

Police Department Southeast Substation

The calls for the Police Department in the current Southeast Substation have grown significantly over the years, and now the current substation cannot accommodate the number of staff required to respond efficiently and effectively to the calls received.  This project will allow a new larger and more modern Southeast Substation to be built that is more centrally located to the southeast area of Fresno and will provide the required space and amenities for staff to perform their duties more timely and effectively. Tentative start is March 2019 with a project duration of 280 working days.

Light Up Fresno – LED Conversion

The City approved an On-Bill Financing program with PG&E in the amount of $10,237,062 for the replacement of all remaining high-pressure sodium (HPS) streetlights throughout the City with energy efficient liquid emitting diode (LED) fixtures. This loan is a zero interest loan.

The construction project begins in March 2019 and should complete at the beginning of 2020. The 36,000 streetlights to be replaced will result in estimated annual savings on electrical usage of $1.6 million. For additional questions contact 311.

Trail Network Expansion Feasibility Plan

The Trail Network Expansion Feasibility Plan is the City’s continued effort to identify and develop class I bike trails in accordance with the March 2, 2017, adopted Active Transportation Plan.

The plan will result in concept drawings as well as an analysis identifying where it is possible to construct corridors of the citywide trail network, and which areas have the greatest need. The plan will highlight areas of the trail network which have been looked at for feasibility. The plan will build on past plans relevant to the project areas, and be utilized to apply for future grant funding.

The next step in the development of the feasibility plan is an opportunity for the community to provide input that will help prioritize trail corridors based on identified needs. Upcoming community workshops and a walkshop are as follows:
