Butterfly Lane Pedestrian Undercrossing
The project will rebuild the stairs at both the north and south portals of the Butterfly Lane Pedestrian Undercrossing at U.S. Route 101; it will also build ramps for wheelchair and mobility scooter access. Caltrans developed the project to improve access to the Butterfly Lane Pedestrian Undercrossing in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Also, as part of the project, the railroad crossing on the south side of U.S. Route 101 will be rebuilt to include a new walkway with railings, one-way pedestrian exit gates, and mobile crossing arms with visual and audio signals.
Construction will begin in the fall or winter of this year and continue into the summer of 2022. The Butterfly Lane Pedestrian Undercrossing will be closed for the duration of construction; pedestrians wishing to access Butterfly Beach from areas north of the freeway will be temporarily detoured to either Olive Mill Road or Channel Drive via East Cabrillo Boulevard. In addition, the Hermosillo Road northbound off-ramp will be closed to traffic for about two months in early 2022.
The purpose of this project is to improve access to the Butterfly Lane Pedestrian Undercrossing at U.S. Route 101 to allow equal access for disabled persons under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
The current approaches to the Butterfly Lane Pedestrian Undercrossing under U.S. Route 101 do not meet current standards for Americans with Disabilities Act accessibility for pedestrians.
