El Paseo Drive Enhancement and Traffic Calming Improvements

The City of Palm Desert invested approximately $1M in pedestrian improvements along El Paseo Drive, the City’s premier shopping and entertainment corridor. Project improvements included high visibility, brightly colored intersection crosswalks, upgraded ADA access ramps, and painted bulb-outs at two major intersections along El Paseo. Other improvements included brightly painted, highly visible speed tables at three pedestrian-activated mid-block crossings controlled by rectangular rapid flashing beacons. Interwest prepared the plans, specifications and construction estimate for the design of these improvements in support of the City’s goal of enhancing pedestrian safety and multi-modal transportation along El Paseo. Our team also provided project management support through the construction phase to project completion.
