MAJOR ACCESS IMPROVEMENTS COMING TO CHICO

Announcing New Grant Funding for Safety and Access Improvements Along Iconic Esplanade Corridor in Chico.

This successful grant application for funding came about because of the continued advocacy of the ADA Transition Committee, a shared project of the Disability Action Center and the City of Chico’s public works department and especially Councilmember Randall Stone. This project was bird-dogged by us. Now we look forward to construction beginning in 2020. It is my hope that the residents of Chico will see this as a wonderful project which works to the benefit of all.

To see the televised news report, go to: http://www.actionnewsnow.com/news/grant-to-fund-safety-upgrades-on-the-esplanade/

I would like all to know that this $7.6 million project will cost the City of Chico only $100 K, due to the contribution of $350 K from the Butte County Association of Governments, supplementing the $7.2 Million awarded by CalTrans.  I see lots of construction jobs in our future, starting in 2020.

“A Class IV Bikeway (separated bikeway) is a bikeway for the exclusive use of bicycles (plus wheelchair users and pedestrians) and includes a separation required between the separated bikeway and the through vehicular traffic. The separation may include, but is not limited to, grade separation, flexible posts, inflexible physical barriers, or on-street parking.” — CalTrans design information bulletin
