Document Description
The proposed project involves various non-motorized “complete streets” improvements. A separated and paved Class I multi-use bicycle/pedestrian path will be created along the Esplanade, connecting downtown; California State University, Chico; Chico Junior and Senior High Schools; a regional hospital; and neighborhoods adjacent to the existing Airport Class I multi-use path at 11th Avenue. The parallel street to the east of the Esplanade, Oleander Avenue, would also receive signage, sidewalk, signal, and stop control improvements between 10th Avenue and Memorial Way. A roundabout would be installed at the intersection of Oleander Avenue and Memorial Way adjacent to Chico Junior High School. Two traffic signals are proposed to be installed, one at the intersection of Oleander Avenue/1st Avenue and another at West Sacramento Avenue/Esplanade. Existing traffic signals would be outfitted with pedestrian signal crossing equipment, updated traffic detection equipment, an associated traffic signal timing plan to accommodate the added pedestrian phases, and pedestrian refuge islands where applicable.
