The Downtown Corridors Bicycle and Pedestrian Improvement Project is set to begin on Monday, March 13. The project includes various pedestrian and bicycle safety and aesthetic improvements throughout the downtown area.

The project is anticipated to be completed by October 2023, while work adjacent to Todos Santos Plaza is anticipated to be completed by end of April, weather permitting. 

Project improvements will accommodate bike lanes in both directions on Grant Street, which requires the removal of six parking spaces on the plaza side of Grant St. between Salvio St. and Willow Pass Rd.  

In addition, the sidewalk on the Salvio Pacheco Square side of Salvio St. will be widened, which requires the removal of all parking spots on the business side of Salvio St. between Mt. Diablo St and Grant St. Oak St will also be repaved, with bicycle improvements to follow.

Added safety measures include the installation of new street lighting throughout the project site, and the addition of dedicated left-turn signal phases at Salvio south onto Galindo and north onto Concord Ave. The City appreciates the patience and understanding shown by Concord residents while the projects are under construction.

City staff have launched a web page to keep community members updated about this project. It will be updated regularly with information and photos.
