Sports Park Drive Pedestrian Overcrossing Project

CIP 17-22

Phase: Design

Anticipated Construction Start Date:  Summer 2021

Project Description

The complete project consists of the design and construction of a bicycle/pedestrian crossing over SR-113 along the alignment of Sports Park Drive to Farmers Central Road.

This project, along with planned Spring Lake development, will complete a bicycle/pedestrian connection along the south side of town from CR 102 to East Street. This pathway is planned for extension from East Street to Ashley Avenue. This will enable residents to access the existing north/south bike lane corridors throughout the City. This project will provide bicycle/pedestrian access to the Community Center/Sports Park and to the growth areas on the east side of SR-113.

Notice of Availability and Intent to Adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration for Sports Park Drive Pedestrian Overcrossing Project

The City of Woodland has completed an Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) for a proposed pedestrian path from the intersection of Matmor Road and Sports Park Drive, crossing over SR-113, and connecting to a planned 8-acre park and Harry Lorenzo Avenue east of the project site. The IS/MND found the following environmental factors to be less than significant with mitigation incorporated: Air Quality, Biological Resources, Cultural Resources, Geology and Seismicity, Hazards and Hazardous Materials, Noise, Traffic and Circulation, and Water Quality. The project is a linear project crossing over SR-113 from the cross streets of Matmor Road and Sports Park Drive in the west to Harry Lorenzo Avenue in the east in the City of Woodland, California.

Based on a search of the California Department of Toxic Substance Control’s EnviroStar database, the State Water Resources Control Board’s Geotracker database, and CalEPA’s Cortese List website, there are no hazardous waste cleanup sites within the project site. 

The City proposes to develop a pedestrian path from the intersection of Matmor Road and Sports Park Drive, cross over SR-113, and connect to a planned 8-acre park and Harry Lorenzo Avenue east of the project site. The pedestrian path will connect new and planned development on the east side of SR-113 with a school, a sports park and existing residential facilities on the west side of SR-113.

Reference copies of the Mitigated Negative Declaration are available on CEQAnet and on the link below. If you are unable to access the internet, please contact Sara Andreotti at sara.andreotti@cityofwoodland.org to arrange for an alternative means to view the study. The required 30-day public review period for the Mitigated Negative Declaration will extend from Tuesday, December 29, 2020 to Friday, January 29, 2021.
