Beckwith Road/Standiford Avenue is located in the City of Modesto and provides direct connections to residential neighborhoods as well as commercial and economic hubs in the region such as the Vintage Faire Mall and other nearby shopping centers. Currently, the corridor has no dedicated facilities for bicyclists and limited facilities for transit users. The closely spaced intersections often cause long queues of motor vehicles which can back up onto the highway leading to safety concerns.  As a result, some collision rates within the project area significantly exceed the statewide average.

The project concept is to improve the corridor and adjoining local streets by implementing a complete streets approach. This approach will integrate bicycle and pedestrian travel with motor vehicle travel to improve safety, access, and visibility for all users including bicyclists, pedestrians, and transit users.
