Road improvements are coming to the Esplanade in Chico.

City leaders tell Action News Now the work on the two-mile stretch kicks off spring next year. The project includes grinding down and repaving the existing road, and updating sidewalks, curbs, gutters, and even bike lanes. The funds for the $3.5 to 4.5 million dollar project are coming from California's gas tax and Senate Bill 1.

City manager Mark Orme says he expects the work to take a couple of months, depending on weather conditions.

The road improvements will span from Lindo channel bridge to Eaton road.

It was slightly hotter today around northern California with far more sun than cloud cover. We'll have another mostly sunny and hot day on Thursday, but changes will arrive before the week is complete.
