Abstract/Artist Statement

The San Joaquin Regional Transit District (SJRTD) has expressed a desire to expand an existing mall transfer station in the City of Stockton on West Yokuts Avenue between Pacific Avenue and Claremont Avenue, between the Weberstown and Sherwood Malls. The new transit station will house Metro Hoppers (Hoppers), a bus service that accommodates Americans with Disabilities (ADA) certified passengers. Currently six (6) Hoppers are using the northern region of the mall parking lot as a passenger loading and unloading zone. The purpose of this project is to provide a permanent, efficient, and user-friendly bus transfer facility for mall patrons and bus passengers. Tekton Prestige Engineering (Tekton) understands that SJRTD plans to develop a mall transfer station at Yokuts Avenue to assist traffic of the existing Hoppers. The new facility will accommodate bus access for the transit route entering and exiting the transit stop, as well as accessibility for pedestrians from the surrounding area of stores and restaurants. To facilitate movement of pedestrians through the street without conflict with motor vehicles, designated pedestrian crosswalks and sidewalks connecting the two malls. The expansion project also requires new pavement design and the planning of an adjacent parking garage to recover eliminated parking spaces. Engineered solutions will be designed per California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) Highway Design Manual, American Association of State and Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO) specifications and ADA standards.
