New sidewalks coming to Central Ave, E & 3rd Streets

The project consists of the installation of sidewalks in the area bounded by Gateway Drive, Central Avenue, E Street, and 3rd Street. A solar-powered, pedestrian-activated rectangular rapid flashing beacon system will be installed for the crosswalk on Gateway at Central Avenue. The project received federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) grant funding because it promotes pedestrian travel from the residential areas south of the Fresno River and east of Gateway Drive to Rotary Park and other destinations north of the river.
