Project Name: La Quinta Village Complete Streets Project
Project Number: 2015-03
The Project will reduce four traffic lanes to two lanes along Calle Tampico and Calle Sinaloa from Eisenhower to Desert Club Drive, and along Eisenhower from Calle Tampico to Calle Sinaloa. This area will be used as space for designated bike and golf cart lanes. Roundabouts will be installed at five key intersections, Calle Tampico and Desert Club Drive, Calle Tampico and Avenida Bermudas, Calle Tampico and Eisenhower Drive, Eisenhower Drive and Avenida Montezuma, and Calle Sinaloa/Avenue 52 and Avenida Bermudas, to provide better traffic flows.
The reduced lanes and crosswalks added midblock will provide pedestrians with safer access to Civic Center Park, Old Town La Quinta, and the Benjamin Franklin Elementary School. In addition, this project includes drainage and landscaping enhancements. The Project improvements were developed through public outreach meetings related to the Village Specific Plan.
