Siegfried provided civil engineering, landscape architecture, surveying, and public outreach for the Main Street Complete Streets project. This design project provided improvement plans for the upgrade of Main Street.
Main Street in Stockton from Highway 99 to Downtown was in a state of disrepair. A busy four-lane road, most of the curbs were crumbling and very few of the sidewalks were ADA compliant, let alone ramps that were accessible. Add in that this area also serves public transit, is a main walking path for several schools, and is home to South Stockton’s only library, the Fair Oaks Library. Siegfried’s improvement plan called for a Road Diet to reduce the street from four lanes down to two lanes, as well as the installation of bike lanes.
Knowing accessibility was a key part of any improvement plan, Siegfried worked with our Survey team to provide an accurate assessment of what needed to be repaired and brought up to code.
Finally, as this was a key part of the City of Stockton’s improvement, Siegfried coordinated public outreach to stakeholders, including mailers, conducting public meetings, design sketches, and mock-ups, and maintaining contact with interested stakeholders.
Because of the length of the project and depth of Siegfried’s involvement, which also included writing the successful Measure K Grant for Main Street, the City of Stockton, San Joaquin Council of Governments, San Joaquin Regional Transit District (SJ RTD), and San Joaquin Regional Rail Commission (SJRRC) all found funding to add several connecting cross streets to the scope in Downtown Stockton to connect with Main Street.
