Temporary installations at Sunset on Sierra will include:
- Protected bicycle lanes- a designated traffic lane for cyclists, separated from vehicular traffic by a physical barrier (bollards, curbs, planters, etc.) making it comfortable for all ages to enjoy.
- Curb extensions- also known as bulb-outs, a traffic calming measure used to extend the sidewalk and reduce the crossing distances for pedestrians.
- Parklets- an extension of the sidewalk that converts one or more on-street parking lanes to create more usable public space.
