Downtown Streetscape Improvement Project
Coming in 2019-20—the Downtown Streetscape Program! Plans are underway to improve the downtown section of State Street by widening sidewalks, making safer pedestrian crossings, and modifying the traffic circulation patterns. As the project nears, there will be public meetings and much more correspondence, and this page will be updated whenever there is new information. You can also subscribe to the mailing list.

Who’s Paying for This Project?
Who’s Paying for This Project?
Staff has been working diligently to obtain funding for the project. To date, the City has been awarded funding in the amount of $1.3 million from the State Transportation Improvement Program and $1 million from the Highway Safety Improvement Program. Part of the Project will also be paid for by the utilities that will be replaced beneath the street. When final cost estimates are available, the City Council will help determine what, if any, additional funds might be used for the project.
Project Description for Phase One
This project will provide streetscape improvements in downtown Ukiah on State Street, Perkins Street, and Standley Street, including sidewalk widening, curb ramps and bulb outs, street lights, street furniture and tree planting. The project also includes a road diet between Henry Street and Mill Street that will transform the existing four-lane cross section into a three-lane cross section with one travel lane in each direction and a two way left-turn lane in the center with on-street parking maintained. In addition to the road diet, signal modifications will be made at each of the three signalized intersections (Standley Street, Perkins Street, and Mill Street) to provide vehicle detection, improve coordination and re-orient the signal equipment to support the road diet alignment. This work will also include a pavement overlay, striping, and pavement markings.
What Area Does Phase One Cover?
The total project area spans State Street from Henry Street to Mill Street, Standley and Perkins Streets from School to Main, and Henry Street from School to State Streets.
Phase One Timeline:
- an environmental review phase (completed in 2016)
- a design phase (in 2016-19, where we solicited public input)
- construction in 2020
Project Description for Phase Two
Phase Two will construct streetscape improvements including sidewalk widening, curb ramps and bulb outs, street lights, street furniture and tree planting. The project also includes a road diet that will transform the existing four-lane cross section into a three-lane cross section with one travel lane in each direction and a two way left-turn lane in the center with on-street parking maintained. Signal modifications will be made at the State Street and Gobbi Street intersection to provide vehicle detection and re-orientation of the signal equipment to support the road diet alignment. This work will also include a pavement overlay, striping, and pavement markings.
What Area Does Phase Two Cover?
