Wallenberg Way Safety Improvements

Project Description

The City of Petaluma has received concerns from the community regarding access along Wallenberg Way due to narrow traffic conditions. Our teams investigated and have determined safety upgrades are required.

The current width of the road (curb to curb) is 30 feet. According to City safety codes, 36’ of roadway is required to accommodate parking on both sides of a road (8 feet of parking, 10 feet of travel lane in each direction, 8 of feet parking) and 20 feet of clear space is required in order to maintain proper fire access.. Due to this, the Wallenberg Way cannot accommodate parking on both sides of the road.

We will be painting curbs red along portions of Wallenberg Way which will result in removal of parking on one side of the road. This work is being done in order to provide enough space to safely accommodate two-way traffic and emergency vehicle access.
