D Ave Roundabout & War Memorial

The project includes installation of bike lanes, signing and striping enhancements, ADA improvements, reverse angle parking adjacent to Kimball Park, lighting and landscaping to convert D Avenue into a “Community Corridor”, consistent with the City’s General Plan Update and recently adopted Bicycle Master Plan. Improvements will extend along D Avenue from Division Street south to E. 30th Street.

The project will also construct a modern roundabout to calm traffic and enhance pedestrian safety at the intersection of D Avenue and E. 12th Street. Improvements include splitter islands on each approach for pedestrian refuge, signing and striping enhancements, ADA improvements, lighting and landscaping. The goal is to improve pedestrian access, reduce vehicle speeds, collisions and cut-through traffic, and provide a safer environment to encourage more children to walk to and from Otis Elementary School, Central Elementary School and National City Middle School.

This project will also include the rehabilitation and upgrade of the existing war memorial on the southwest corner of 12th Street & D Avenue.
