Document Description
This proposed project is committed to improve pedestrian safety at the intersection of State Route 273 and Westwood Ave. in South Redding, Shasta County, CA. Two fatal pedestrian accidents have occurred at this intersection during the past five years. In order to meet project objectives, the following construction upgrades will be established: add an additional right-turn lane to Westwood Avenue by widening to the south, add new sidewalks to both sides of Westwood Avenue, add intersection lighting, add lighting to illuminate the southbound (SB) SR 273 right-turn movement from SB SR 273 onto Westwood Avenue, and add crosswalks to SR 273 and Westwood Avenue. In addition to the above-mentioned improvements, two bus stops will be added to both sides of SR 273. Drainage improvements will occur on the west side of SR 273 and a maintenance pull-out will also be added to the same side of SR 273 just north of Westwood Avenue. Project related activities will occur within the Caltrans right-of-way (ROW), with the exception of a temporary easement onto City of Redding land. Federal resources are a part of the project funding.
