The City of Carlsbad is working on a project to widen sidewalks, add free on-street parking and improve safety and access for all users in the area around Carlsbad Boulevard and Tamarack Avenue. See updated design.
What's the Recommendation?
A three lane road with a traffic signal: More space for sidewalks and bike lanes
Widening sidewalks and improving bike lanes throughout the area.
Adding new parking spaces on Tamarack Avenue and Carlsbad Boulevard.
Getting rid of the asphalt island on the west side of Carlsbad Boulevard and south of Tamarack Avenue.
Relocating the bus stops to more accessible locations.
Creating more functional space on the ocean side of Carlsbad Boulevard, just to the south of Tamarack, including an overlook with space to sit and enjoy.
A new crosswalk across Carlsbad Boulevard south of Sequoia Avenue to the lagoon trailhead.
Signs directing people to the Coastal Rail Trail along the railroad tracks between Tamarack and Oak Avenue.
