Kelly and Park Drives were identified in the city’s Carlsbad Active Transportation Strategy as a location where improvements could be made to enhance safety and improve access to trails.
The Strategy was initiated in coordination with the Trails Master Plan Update. The project leverages unique opportunities to meet the city’s livable streets goals due to the geographic setting, adjacent land uses and desired use of the street by various modes of travel.
Designing roads that can safely accommodate all modes of travel is a priority for the city. Improving access and connectivity to trails delivers great health benefits, and allows us to enjoy the city’s natural beauty. The proposed project would include both elements, and is funded in the current Capital Improvement Program budget.
