South Broadway Extension

The project provides a secondary southern access to the core downtown area, a parallel route in the I-680 corridor, and improved access to I-680 at Rudgear Road. The City of Walnut Creek split the project into the following five phases: 1) the channelization of San Ramon Creek and the construction of a concrete top for use as a roadway surface; 2) the construction of a two lane street from Newell Avenue to Rudgear Road with accommodations for pedestrians; 3) the construction of a soundwall along the east boundary of the travel corridor; 4) the modification of the existing I-680/Rudgear Avenue interchange to more efficiently handle the traffic as a result of the extension of South Broadway; and 5) landscaping between Newell Avenue and Rudgear Road.
