Colorado Esplanade Mitigated Negative Declaration

The proposed Colorado Avenue Esplanade Project (proposed project) would implement circulation modifications, streetscape improvements, and design enhancements to create a gateway into the City from the Exposition Light Rail (LRT) Station and a multi-modal street that provide connections between the Expo LRT (LRT) Station, Downtown, the Civic Center, and specific destinations such as Palisades Park, Palisades Garden Walk, and the Pier. The proposed project would transform Colorado Avenue within the project site into a multi-modal street that supports pedestrian, transit, and bicycle users through the provision of widened sidewalks, a two-way cycle track, a reduction in the number of vehicular lanes and a change in vehicle flow, the realignment of the Main Street to Second Street connection, enhanced crosswalks, and new signalization. Pedestrian and bicycle facilities would be improved and expanded.
