San Juan Complete Streets

Project History

This project is the first phase to rehabilitate and transform San Juan Avenue to a complete street from Madison Avenue to Greenback Lane. San Juan Avenue is a major arterial with two travel lanes in each direction and a two-way left-turn lane. This southern segment end is on the city’s shared border with the Sacramento County. The intersection of Madison Avenue & San Juan Avenue is located in both jurisdictions, but is maintained and operated by the Sacramento County as part of a shared-use agreement. This portion of San Juan Avenue serves a mixture of multi-family and single-family homes, with two elementary schools and San Juan Park within a quarter mile radius. There are also significant commercial uses along this corridor, providing retail along with a variety of small and large services and businesses.
