2016 Streets Improvement Projects


The City Council authorizes funding each year to repair and replace sidewalks and make improvements to streets around the city for pedestrians, bicyclists and motor vehicles based on need and analysis governed by the Pavement Management Plan. 

For the 2016 fiscal year, a major focus of street improvements will be in the Sunny Brae and South H Street neighborhoods.

Project Location and Goals

The City will be making street improvements on in the Sunny Brae and South H Street neighborhoods at the following locations:
  • Buttermilk Lane between Bayside Road and Margaret Lane;
  • Bayside Road between Crescent Way and Buttermilk Lane;
  • Crescent Way between Old Arcata Road and Bayside Road; and 
  • South H Street between Samoa Boulevard and South G Street.
The City met with neighborhood residents on August 2, 2016, and found most are in favor of:
  • Traffic calming measures to reduce speeding;
  • More enforcement of traffic violations; and
  • Sewer lateral upgrades to sidewalk cleanouts.
The City's additional goals for this project include:
  • Pavement preservation;
  • Pedestrian and accessibility improvements; and
  • Drainage improvements.

Let Us Know What You Think

There's still time to let the Engineering Department know of street improvements you'd like made:


The $600,000 budget for this project will come from City of Arcata general funds and Measure G tax revenue. Sewer lateral repairs are made possible by bill paying Arcata water and sewer utility users.
