Walker Street Improvements UPDATE

The community conversation about “Streetscapes” design for the section of Walker Street from 2nd to 6th is in progress. The latest design concepts were discussed with City Councilmembers and public comments received, in a public meeting September 18th.

Please note that redirecting truck traffic is no longer part of the project proposal, and roundabouts are only an option for possible future consideration – as required for all Caltrans projects. The Council has not adopted roundabouts as part of the plan. We are looking at ways to improve traffic flow while creating a more inviting and safe downtown environment. The next Streetscapes project meeting is not yet scheduled.  For any questions or comments, please contact Janet Wackerman, (530) 865-1602.
