An updated Safe Route to Schools plan – with higher priorities including an improved crosswalk on East Tabor Avenue, a new sidewalk between Olive Drive and Clay Bank Road and modified traffic signals along Travis Boulevard and Eisenhower Street – goes before the Fairfield City Council when its meets Tuesday.
Crosswalk work is recommended for East Tabor at Falcon Drive, Blossom Avenue and Manor Place. The new 1,200-foot sidewalk sought between Olive Drive and Clay Bank Road would be built across from the Union Pacific Railroad tracks. The modified signal on Travis Boulevard would allow all-pedestrian movement at Travis Boulevard and Eisenhower Street.
