  1. Background

In October 2021, the City Council authorized staff to resubmit a One Bay Area Grant Cycle 2 (OBAG 2) grant application for the Campbell PDA Enhancements Project.  In November 2021, the VTA Board approved reprogramming OBAG 2 funds toward this project.  In March 2022, staff learned that both Caltrans and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) had approved programming of federal funds toward the Design phase of this project.  

The Project will improve livability, economic vitality, and sense of place by providing more pedestrian-friendly routes that will help guide Downtown visitors to safer, shorter walking paths.  The project will use complete streets best practices like designing for all users (multiple transportation modes like walking, biking, and transit; accessible ramps for persons with disabilities).  The project will serve pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit riders.
