2023 Intersection & Crosswalk Improvement Project

The 2023 Intersection & Crosswalk Improvements Project continues to move forward. The concrete ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) curb ramp upgrades have been completed. A total of twelve new curb ramps have been installed at four intersections and new stop sign foundations have been completed at three of the intersections.  The stop sign systems, speed humps and striping upgrades are scheduled to be completed in February 2024.    


The schedule currently has the intersections being done in the following order, but is subject to change at any time:

1. Boyd Road & Patterson Boulevard                                                                                                                                                                2. Gladys Drive & Helen Road                                                                                                                                                                          3. Oak Park Boulevard & Wendell Lane                                                                                                                                                            4.

Preliminary Bid Opening Results

The City is embarking on a new project designed to help improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists near school sites in Pleasant Hill. 

At its May 15, 2023, meeting the Pleasant Hill City Council approved funding for the 2023 Intersection & Crosswalk Improvements Project.  This project will provide improvements at intersections currently monitored in the morning and early afternoon during the school year by City provided school crossing guards.

Construction will be starting this fall with expected completion by early 2024.  

These new improvements will benefit the entire community, including students and parents, and will provide safety for pedestrians and bicyclists on a year-round basis through the installation of curb ramps, additional signage, new high visibility crosswalks, flashing beacon systems, LED flashing stop signs and speed humps. 

This project will be funded by Measure K as approved by the City Council for street improvements and pedestrian and bicyclist safety.
