6. Q&A
A. What is a time table for beginning and ending project?
i. First step is the completion of the road HP Way (See Plan for detail). Once the City of Roseville gets on board with the plan, they can begin the process.

Q&A

 

  1. Jana Cervantes, Sr. Engineer, Roseville Public Works

Traffic Presentation for BONA Areas of Concern

Stated that they are aware of traffic issues at Opal and Crocker Ranch Road from visitors at Mel

Hamel Park. Visitors are parking on surrounding neighborhood streets impacting residents on those streets. Planning to provide potential solution by narrowing of Opal Way to one lane and providing parking on Opal, so parking will not spill into neighboring streets.

Known trouble spot is Woodcreek Oaks Blvd/Parkside Intersection near new park. No parking

available. May consider a resolution similar to Mel Hamel Park. They will be doing study in the

next couple of weeks to determine traffic patterns and busiest times. Also Woodcreek is too wide of a street for kids to cross. Will be looking at other options including sign like yield to pedestrians, flashing beacons, or adding special pedestrian refuge islands. Other traffic information shared.
