Overview of the Parker Avenue Reconstruction Project

The Parker Avenue Reconstruction Project is an approximately 1-mile long project that seeks to revitalize downtown Rodeo by creating a more pedestrian- and bike-friendly environment. Improvements include new landscaped median islands, a new road surface with bike lanes and street parking, new sidewalks with colored concrete at the downtown intersections, decorative pedestrian lights, benches, improved street drainage, new safety street lights, and many other items intended to improve the overall infrastructure of the downtown.

A traffic signal will be installed at 7th Street and Parker Avenue, and a crosswalk and pedestrian signal will be installed along Parker Avenue between the Post Office and Lefty Gomez Park.
