North Bailey Road Complete Streets Design (County of Contra Costa)

Contra Costa County had started design of a two-way cycle-track along the west side of Bailey Road and hired W-Trans to assist with evaluating options and providing details for preliminary design. The project extends about one-half mile from the SR 4 eastbound ramps to Willow Pass Road, and includes four existing signalized intersections plus one proposed new traffic signal. W-Trans conducted a traffic operations analysis of the proposed changes, drew up a preliminary design exhibit in a format suitable for a public hearing; evaluated truck turns and provided design details for protected intersections and dimensions for openings in the proposed landscaped buffer between the cycle track and adjacent vehicle lanes; prepared typical striping and channelizer details; and designed traffic signal modifications to accommodate new exclusive bicycle phases and bicycle signal heads.
