Hearn Avenue SMART Multi-Use Crossing Operational Today, the switch was flipped, activating the new signalized crossing which connects two segments of the SMART multi-use path on Hearn Avenue in southwest Santa Rosa. This new signalized street connection provides an enhanced crossing at Hearn Avenue for bicyclists and pedestrians using the multi-use pathway along the SMART rail corridor. The lighted crosswalk is connected to the railroad equipment to turn red in conjunction with the railroad crossing activation. In addition to the signal crossing, crews modified the center street median to accommodate the crosswalk, placed signage and pavement markings, and added ADA curb ramps on each side of Hearn Avenue for improved accessibility. This project was funded in part by SB1 gas tax.
The SMART Hearn Multi-Use Crossing is located at Hearn Avenue and the SMART railroad tracks. The project will connect two existing segments of the SMART Multi-Use path (MUP) in southwest Santa Rosa. The proposed signalized street connection will create an enhanced crossing at Hearn Avenue for bicyclists and pedestrians using the multi-use path along the SMART rail corridor. The project will design and install a signalized crosswalk at the SMART MUP intersecting with Hearn Avenue. In addition, the project will include construction of ADA curb ramps on each side of the street, minor modifications to the sidewalk, curb and gutter, and modification of the concrete median in Hearn Avenue to accommodate the pathway, signage and pavement markings.
