Shell Beach Road Streetscape Project – Phase 1
On October 25th, 2015, the Pismo Beach City Council voted to move forward with the Shell Beach Road Streetscape Project. This project has been a top priority of Shell Beach Improvement Group since the group’s inception. SBIG has been involved in all phases of the design, including gathering community input for selection of site amenities such as pavers, benches, trash receptacles, light fixtures, etc.
The following “Project Description” is from the City of Pismo Beach website:
The City is currently developing plans to reconstruct an 18 block section of Shell Beach Road in downtown Shell Beach between Cliff Avenue (Dinosaur Caves Park) and Terrace Avenue (Shell Beach Elementary). Following the City’s Complete Streets guidelines, the project will improve safety and livability in the community for all users of all ages and abilities by reconstructing the roadway, adding an 8 foot wide multi-use path to accommodate bicycles and pedestrians, and bring sidewalks into ADA-compliance. This multi-use path will create new options for bicycle commuters and bring economic and health benefits to communities along the path. The City will also be upgrading existing water infrastructure, and the undergrounding of existing overhead utilities.
