2020 APWA Silicon Valley Chapter Project of the Year Award for Transportation – Less than $2 million

ActiveWayz Engineering is proud to have been part of a team that received the 2020 APWA Silicon Valley Chapter Project of the Year Award for Transportation – Less than $2 million Category for the North Access Road Pedestrian and Bike Improvement Project.

The project constructed City of South San Francisco’s first protected bikeway facility. The project has important design features that are essential to improving the safety and convenience for bicyclists. The project was designed to modify the existing roadway with minimal impacts on day-to-day traffic and utilized the right-of-way for construction staging to facilitate crew and materials deployment. The project was developed in coordination with San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC) to provide the most effective pedestrian and bike access to and from the San Francisco Bay Trail.

North Access Road is an important on-street segment of the San Francisco Bay Trail. The road has a posted speed limit of 40 MPH and has four lanes of traffic. Although North Access Road had bike lanes before implementation of the project, the high speed of traffic on the road, traffic increases due to recent construction of a parking structure fronting the road for the San Francisco Airport, and the need for bicyclists to cross three lanes of traffic midblock on a curve to access the Bay Trail created difficult conditions for bicyclists. The project constructed a 1000-foot long protected bike lane (Class IV bikeway) that featured a 12-foot wide, 2-way bike lane on one side of the road separated from vehicular traffic by a raised island. Additionally, the project installed ADA-compliant curb ramps, repaired broken sidewalk, and relocated signs obstructing sidewalk. As a result, the project significantly enhanced the safety and convenience for bicyclists and pedestrians on the San Francisco Bay Trail.

ActiveWayz led the civil design work for the project.
