Councilmember Steve Hansen to preview proposed improvements to Downtown Sacramento Grid

Who: Councilmember Steve Hansen will host a media event to preview proposed transportation improvements outlined by the Sac Grid 2.0 Downtown Transportation Study.

What: More than 119,000 people work in the downtown core, and 115,000 of those workers commute into the central City. Sac Grid 2.0 outlines the plan for an improved downtown transportation network for pedestrians, bicyclists, transit users, and motorists. Some of the proposed roadway improvements include lane reductions on J Street, 15th and 16th Streets in midtown, and two-way street conversions on portions of G, H, and I Streets. Improvements also include new facilities for bicyclists, such as a two-way cycle track on N Street, and new bike lanes that will connect gaps throughout the central city.

Where: Fremont Park at 16th Street between P and Q Streets. The location is part of the recommendations addressed in the study.

When: Friday, Nov. 6, at 7:30 a.m.

More: The Sac Grid 2.0 plan also proposes adding 251 blocks of pedestrian oriented sidewalks and street improvements, converting 62 blocks of one-way streets to two-way streets, and adding 162 additional blocks of bike lanes to enhance traveling around the central City.

Proposed improvements will be presented to the community during an open house meeting on Nov.  9, 2015 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at New City Hall Lobby, 915 I Street. The open house is an opportunity for community members to comment on proposed improvements before the plan is finalized and presented to City Council for acceptance early next year. Members of the media are invited to preview the improvements in advance of the meeting.
