South Broadway Complete Streets

Project logo

Project Description

This project is proposed along US-101/South Broadway  in Eureka, CA to increase comfort and safety for non-motorized users and to provide better connectivity between neighborhoods and the Waterfront Trail.

The project includes:

  • Class IV separated bikeways on Broadway from the Papa & Barkley Co. signalized intersection to the Truesdale Street intersection. Class IV separated bikeways have vertical barrier such as curbs or posts between the bicyclists and vehicles. In some narrow parts, only class II bike lanes or class III shared facilities will fit. Caltrans is seeking input from the City of Eureka and community members to decide the type of barrier for the class IV bikeways.

  • Two new pedestrian crossings near Hilfiker Lane and Truesdale Street/Highland Avenue.
  • Sidewalk and curb ramp improvements where needed.
  • Two new bus stops and existing bus stop upgrades.
  • Pedestrian and bicycle improvements at existing signalized intersections.

Making improvements to South Broadway has been a high priority of the region for many years, and is supported by the City of Eureka, the Humboldt County Association of Governments (HCAOG), other stakeholders—such as civic organizations, businesses, Humboldt Transit Authority, the public health department, active transportation advocates, environmental organizations, and disability rights groups—and the public.

HCAOG, the City of Eureka, and Caltrans recently completed the Eureka Broadway Multimodal Corridor Plan, funded by a Caltrans planning grant. This project will implement the preferred concept for the southern segment identified in the plan. The full Eureka Broadway Multimodal Corridor Plan can be accessed online at hcaog.net/sites/default/files/eureka_broadway_multimodal_corridor_final_report.pdf.
