The City of Davis has several construction projects this summer that will upgrade and improve transportation circulation. To minimize construction disruptions, we have developed this website to provide information on the projects and alert travelers to expected traffic disruptions. As construction begins, we will update this site with new information on traffic impacts and detours. To receive automatic alerts of these updates, please sign up for the RSS Feed, Twitter #DavisRoads or for email alerts, send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The map shows current and future roadwork around Davis this summer. For project details, including the timing, location, description, benefits, traffic impacts, and project manager, refer to the project details below.
Construction schedules will be updated periodically and on a weekly basis after construction begins. For more information, contact the project manager listed. This map only shows major construction projects.

The Third Street Improvements project is a streetscape design plan consisting of improving the safety, function, and aesthetics of the two-block segment of Third Street between A Street and B Street and the B Street alley in downtown Davis for pedestrians and bicycles.
Third Street between A Street and B Street currently functions as a primary pedestrian and bicycle corridor with vehicular access connecting UC Davis with the downtown. The intersection of Third Street and A Street accommodates over 4,000 bicycles a day and a large volume of pedestrians. However, the project area suffers from narrow sidewalks, inadequate pedestrian amenities and lighting, absence of bicycle lanes and amenities, a lack of identity and sense of place, a steeply crowned street, above-ground utility lines, and lacks contemporary drainage conveyance.
