This $6.5M improvement and beautification project completely reconstructed a half-mile roadway section in the downtown area of the City of Seaside (City). This effort was the result of a planning process to revitalize and enhance the economic, social, cultural, and recreational fabric of the City’s West Broadway Avenue—the main arterial in the City and home to many commercial and retail businesses.

The work included complete excavation of the roadway to modify the profile and reconstruction of the sidewalks. The project also installed new drainage systems, a stormwater collection system, 12-inch sanitary sewer, electrical systems for ornamental pedestrian and street lighting, street beautification elements and appurtenances, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant handicap ramps, pedestrian amenities, parking, landscaping, irrigation facilities, and multiple bio-swale infiltration facilities.

The new roadway section consists of a Class II aggregate base and 6-inch hot mix asphalt (HMA) paved surface along with new signalized intersections, signage, and thermoplastic striping and marking. This high visibility project was constructed in multiple stages and required constant coordination with the local businesses and project stakeholders.

The limited one-way traffic during construction required extensive traffic control to detour traffic. Reconstruction of the sidewalks and curb ramps required close coordination with the businesses to provide continued access for pedestrians and bicyclists.

The project was funded through a federal Active Transportation Program (ATP) grant from Caltrans, District 5 and administered per Caltrans Local Assistance Procedures Manual (LAPM) guidelines. This project finished on schedule and within budget. MNS provided construction management and inspection, office engineering, and design survey.
