A key project to enhance the campus infrastructure, the new pedestrian Olive Lane walkway beautifies the campus and upgrades the way people move through Cal Poly Pomona. The walkway is a direct result of the Campus Master Planning process, which identified the creation of larger pedestrian zones on the campus.
The completion of the new path from Engineering, past the Aratani Japanese Garden and over to what used to be the main entrance to Olive Lane, is the first phase of what will ultimately transition Olive Lane to foot traffic only. Vehicles will no longer be allowed on the walkway, except emergency and service vehicles required for a particular location.
Campus departments that use Olive Lane are creating plans to eliminate university vehicular traffic from this street. Service parking areas and special use permits will be created.
The pedestrian walkway also partners with the new campus transportation plan by improving intracampus transportation, doing away with the old tram lanes.
