Esplanade Corridor Improvement Study public workshop scheduled:

The City of Chico Public Works Department/Traffic Engineering Division has commenced a study to review potential transportation and traffic safety 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.
