A new roadway recently opened to the public with a ribbon cutting ceremony in front of Columbia Elementary School, on Old Oregon trail near Redding.
The left turn lane project begins at viking way and proceeds north to just north of the school.
It includes six food wide bike lanes on both sides of Old Oregon train, and should relieve congestion in front of the school.
Bottom line, it provides students safer access to walk and bike to school.
This was a $448 thousand dollar construction project.
On hand were Shasta County Board of Supervisors Chairman Les Baugh and Columbia School Superintendent Clay Ross , along with Supervisor David Kehoe and Sara Sundquist with Public Health-Healthy Shasta. Anne Thomas reresented Shasta Living Streets, and County Public Works Director Pat Minturn and Scott Wahl,Deputy Director, were also on hand.
