Suggested alternatives to the problems involved with the south side of Chico.
Problem Definition
4th and Orange Street runs 2 blocks south of Chico State University campus
and is a popular route for traffic, pedestrians, and bicyclists. This location is
also next to the city of Chico train station attracting more bus, vehicle,
pedestrian, and bicyclist traffic. This area utilizes an outdated street design
not only for the vehicles and busses, but for pedestrians as well too.
Goal of Project
The primary goal of this proposal is to increase safety and serviceability
while keeping costs at a minimum. Improvements will include resurfacing,
lighting, a buffer zone for bicyclists, and repurposing 4th street into a west
bound one-way street.
