The roadway and bridge are widened equally on both sides to increase driver sight distance, add 5’ bike lanes, and 6’ pathways on both sides.

  • Driver sight distance improved (doubled for southbound drivers near bridge)

 

  • 2 pathways

 

  • 5’ bike lanes

 

  • Mission Aqueduct Column, Lower Reservoir Wall, & Stegosaurus Walls Remain

 

  • Utility poles & wires under-grounded

 

  • Eligible for federal funding (bridge, 1 sidewalk)

  • Oliver trough-fountain shifted

 

  • Monastery gate & 30’ of connecting wall relocated

 

  • Right of Way from Rocky Nook Park & Mount Calvary Monastery

 

  • 7 sycamore trees (6” to 48”) removed

To illustrate how potential roadway options would look from the street level, the Studies team used the 2-path option (the widest street option) and created photo simulations.

The roadway is widened, and Mission Canyon Bridge is rehabilitated or replaced to increase driver sight distance, add 5’ bike lanes, and a partial 6’ pedestrian path upstream. A 10’ wide pedestrian bridge is added downstream.

The rehabilitation or replacement of the bridge and part of the roadway realignment are eligible for federal funding through the Highway Bridge Program (HBP). The separate pedestrian bridge is not eligible for federal funding.

  • Only a partial upstream path

 

  • Stegosaurus wall portion removed

 

  • Monastery gate & 30’ of connecting wall relocated

 

  • Right of Way from Rocky Nook Park & Kay family

 

  • 4 sycamore trees (6” to 48”) removed & 5 oak trees (6” to 14”) removed

 

  • Pedestrian bridge not eligible for federal funding

  • Driver sight distance improved (doubled for southbound drivers near bridge)

 

  • Partial 6’ path upstream, 10’ pedestrian bridge downstream

 

  • 5’ bike lanes

 

  • Mission Aqueduct Column, Lower Reservoir Wall, Oliver trough-fountain remain

 

  • Utility poles & wires under-grounded

 

  • Eligible for Federal funding (bridge, 1 sidewalk)

 

Mission Canyon Bridge is rehabilitated or replaced along with a 6’ path on the upstream side of road, 5’ bike lanes, and minor roadway alignment improvements. This alternative would not be eligible for federal funding, because it does not address roadway deficiencies north and south of the bridge.

  • The existing bridge is rehabilitated or replaced to meet current design codes

 

  • 5’ bike lanes

 

  • Mission Aqueduct Column, Lower Reservoir Wall, and Stegosaurus Walls remain

 

  • Minimal property acquisition from Rocky Nook Park

  • Vehicular and bicyclist facilities below current safety standards; can NOT be supported by City as it does NOT meet VisionZero safety standards

 

  • Only 1 pedestrian path 

 

  • Oliver trough-fountain shifted

 

  • 7 sycamore trees (6” to 48”) removed

 

  • Not eligible for federal funding
