CalTrans Looking for Local Traffic Safety Help

Caltrans (District 1) in Eureka is looking for help in developing its very first District 1 Active Transportation Plan.

This is a really exciting “first” for them. They’re identifying locations on state highways throughout the entire District (Del Norte, Humboldt, Lake, and Mendocino Counties) where pedestrians and bicyclists need better infrastructure to encourage more safe and comfortable trips made on foot or by bicycle.

Public input is VERY important in this effort, and that’s why they’re asking for your help. They’d love to know your opinions about where things can be improved for pedestrians and cyclists and have developed an online mapping survey (https://survey.catplan.org/) so you can locate areas where your have walking or biking concerns. The survey closes November 30, 2020. 

If you have something to say that isn’t easily captured through the survey, you can contact them at:
