The overall purpose of the Grant Avenue Pathway and Drainage Improvements Project was to provide multi-modal and environmentally responsible improvements along Grant Avenue, between Via Seco and the Union Pacific Railroad, in San Lorenzo, California. This project included the construction of a paved 8’ multi-modal pathway, installation of a 2’ wide gravel running path, construction of Class II bicycle lanes, rehabilitation of the pavement on Grant Avenue, installation of Bay-Friendly certified landscaping, and storm drain improvements including vegetation swales and rain garden drainage facilities. These safe and sustainable community improvements serve the multi-modal transportation needs of residents, school children, and nearby businesses. The improvements also complete an important pedestrian and bicycle transportation link between the residential areas of San Lorenzo with the San Francisco Bay Trail.
