Weber Avenue Streetscape
The Weber Avenue Streetscape Project is split into two phases, each phase further enhancing the downtown area.
This revitalization project is a vital step to:
- reinvigorating local businesses,
- creating an inviting, pedestrian-friendly streetscape, and
- encouraging the use of mass transit.
The project spans nine blocks - Stanislaus Street to the Alamont Corridor Express (ACE) train station.
Phase 2 - Stanislaus to Union Pacific Railroad
Phase 2 construction started May 5, 2014, and should take about eight months to complete.
Upgrades and enhancements include:
- curbs and gutters,
- median/raised median improvements,
- traffic calming and bulbout features, and
- street lighting.
Traffic control will be in place throughout construction, and Weber Avenue will be open with restrictions. The public should expect an initial detour for eastbound traffic on Weber Avenue. Resident and business access adjacent to the work area will remain open.

Phase 1 - El Dorado to Stanislaus
In 2001, City Council approved the Master Plan for Weber Avenue Streetscape Beautification.
In 2003, Phase 1 included the six blocks of El Dorado Street to Stanislaus Street. Streetscape features were added to existing sidewalks; it did not include full reconstruction.
All funds for Weber Avenue Streetscape have been fully funded by the two federal funds listed below. No general funds from the City were used in this project.
Transportation Enhancement Activities
The Transportation Enhancement (TE) Program offered much-needed funding opportunities to help expand and enhance transportation choices. These areas include:
- pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure and safety programs,
- scenic and historic highway programs,
- landscaping and scenic beautification,
- historic preservation, and
- environmental mitigation.
Regional Surface Transportation Program
The Regional Surface Transportation Program (RSTP) was established by California State Statute from Surface Transportation Program Funds. This program allowed for construction, reconstruction, rehabilitation, resurfacing, restoration, and operational improvements to the Weber Avenue Streetscape.
