The City of Eureka was awarded a Caltrans Sustainable Communities Grant to fund the development of a multimodal plan. The goal of the Eureka North-South Multimodal Corridor Plan is to improve the safety, accessibility, and overall experience of corridor users. Some of the primary issues that the City would like to address include:
- Vehicular speeding and unsafe pedestrian crossing
- Rising number of collision history
- Evolving characteristics in land use
- Limited pedestrian/transit connectivity
- Lack of safer multimodal facilities
TJKM conducted an extensive assessment of the of the corridor’s existing conditions, identified multimodal best practices (utilized by various cities with similar corridor conditions) which would also work for the City’s project area, and utilized various outreach efforts to encourage stakeholder participation/insight and support. Using the information gathered, TJKM unveiled three design concepts for the corridor at a City Council meeting in August.
A copy of the Draft Final Report is available online on the City of Eureka website.
