The objective of the project was to take the City of Stockton‘s existing improvement plans and re-design the project to add landscaping, widen the roadway, accommodate increased traffic volumes, and address the concerns of the community members regarding safety and appearance. The project closely studied the use of in-ground lit crosswalks and incorporated over 10,000 LF of new curbs, gutters, sidewalks, and ADA ramps. Cleveland Elementary lies in the middle of the project and has a history of student safety issues. The reconfiguration of the intersection and signal at Fulton Street and the installation of new sidewalks increased safety. At the heart of the project are sustainable elements blended perfectly with low maintenance and low water designs. Not only is the irrigation system utilizing AB-1881 compliant drip systems, it utilizes a new two-wire with decoder valve control system. One unique element is the use of granite cobblestone the city had stockpiled throughout the years. The stone was originally used as ballast material in ships that would come to port over 100 years ago. Originally used for curbs, it is now recycled as tree planter enhancements.
