Link Shasta - Active Transportation Loop
The City of Shasta Lake has identified priority routes to consider for active transportation improvements. These improvements could include designated bike and pedestrian facilities, traffic calming measures, complete streets, and increased connectivity within the city. Improvements would be appropriate to each area and their intended use. Public outreach is currently being conducted to collect input on what improvements the community would like to see.
The first phase includes the Affordable Housing Sustainable Communities (AHSC) funded Cascade Village project. (project webpage). This will include complete streets along Shasta Dam Boulevard from Shasta Way to Locust Street. It will also include Safe Routes to School, creating connectivity to Grand Oaks School, and street improvements around the Redding Rancheria Economic Development Corporation (RREDCO)'s future commercial center.
Phase two will include active transportation improvements along critical corridors within the city, creating connectivity between households and residents to key destinations. Proposed routes for this phase have been identified and the City is in the process of gathering public input on active transportation needs to best serve the community. The City anticipates applying for an Active Transportation Program (ATP) grant to fund this phase of the project.
The third phase of the Link Shasta project includes active transportation improvements along Shasta Dam Boulevard from Ashby Road to Lake Boulevard, Ashby Road from Woodly Avenue to Pine Grove Avenue, and Pine Grove Avenue from Coeur D'Alene Avenue to Lake Boulevard. Funding for this project has not been identified, and a construction date is TBD.
Upcoming Public Outreach Opportunities
Street Story is an online tool that collects resident experiences related to transportation crashes, near-misses, general hazards, and safe locations. Public input gathered in Street Story will be utilized to identify which areas need improvement.
