The City of Chico is conducting a study to review potential transportation and traffic safety improvements to the Esplanade between Memorial Way and 11th Avenue.
The purpose of the study is to engage the public in determining a package of roadway improvements for this key transportation corridor in the City which serves many trip purposes and modes. 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 maintaining traffic flow. Ultimately, the study will recommend improvements which will be reviewed for adoption by the City Council. With City Council approval, the resultant study will serve as a guiding document for grant application(s) to fund recommended improvements.
The Study includes a public outreach process to involve the public in helping to determine the type and location of improvements in the corridor. The first of two workshops took place on September 9, 2015. Public Workshop #2 took place on November 19, 2015. Public Workshop #3 took place on…. Details and presentation materials (where available) are below.

Esplanade Corridor On-Line Surveys:
