Rheem Boulevard between Moraga Road and St. Mary’s Road
The Lafayette-Moraga Regional Trail, maintained by East Bay Regional Park District, which is heavily traveled by pedestrians and bicyclists, is located just east of the project site, approximately parallel to St. Mary’s Road.
Rheem Boulevard is a two-lane roadway that extends from the City of Orinda limits to St. Mary’s Road in the Town of Moraga. The project site is between Moraga Road and St. Mary’s Road, which is mostly residential and rural in nature with rolling terrain. This portion of Rheem Boulevard connects the City of Lafayette and Saint Mary’s College to the east to the center of Moraga and the City of Orinda to the west. An existing landslide below Rheem Boulevard has created a physical condition on this portion of the roadway affecting traffic flow and emergency vehicle response.
