Downtown Streetscape Improvement Project

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.
