In order to promote multiple modes of travel in Downtown Chico, vehicle traffic circulation patterns would be modified to accommodate bicycle lanes and shortened pedestrian crossings (corner bulb-outs), largely within the existing public right-of-way. The project would convert 2nd Street to a one-way eastbound roadway from Broadway to Flume Street, and 1st Street would become a one-way westbound roadway from Flume Street to Salem Street (resulting in a "couplet"). The project includes a roundabout at the intersection of 1st/2nd/Flume Streets and Vallombrosa Avenue, and a student drop-off circle at 1st and Salem Streets. The project may be constructed in multiple construction, as funding permits, but all project components currently under consideration are assumed to be included in the analysis.
