Project Summary

As the home of the Bicycle Hall of Fame, the City of Davis desires to establish itself once again as a leader in bicycle facility innovation. To help them reclaim that distinction, Toole Design is providing overall conceptual design direction to turn Russell Boulevard into an inviting, safe, multimodal corridor that will serve as a distinctive gateway into the City.

Russell Boulevard is a key east-west street that marks the northern edge of the main UC Davis campus and provides access to downtown Davis and numerous campus destinations. We have re-envisioned the corridor with safe, separated facilities for bicyclists of all ages and abilities.

Our work on Russell Boulevard will transform the corridor into an ecologically sustainable and safe street that welcomes people of all ages and abilities.

The 3-mile study area of Russell Boulevard extends from County Route 98 to B Street in downtown Davis.
Each portion of the corridor has its own unique identity. We provided design guidance on planting palettes, types of street furnishings, and how the space will be allocated.
We provided green infrastructure throughout the corridor to capture stormwater runoff and funnel it into green gutters and rain gardens.
