Bicycle Plan Update 2015:

The City of Chico is working with key stakeholders, advocacy groups, and a consultant team to develop a strategy for improving bicycle education, programs, and infrastructure. We will be looking at existing conditions, considering new areas of growth as outlined in the General Plan, and engaging the community through workshops. The resulting draft plan will be shared with policy and decision-makers, and be used to seek funding grants for developing projects locally.

Esplanade Corridor Improvement Study-second public workshop scheduled:

The City of Chico Public Works Department/Traffic Engineering Division has commenced a study to review potential traffic safety and transportation improvements to the Esplanade between Memorial Way and 11th Avenue. The study will seek to address traffic safety and operational concerns, enhance the corridor with complete street features, provide more facilities and safety for bicyclists and pedestrians while keeping the integrity of the “Boulevard” design, community character, and still maintaining traffic flow. For more detailed information and a schedule please visit Esplanade Corridor Improvement Study.
