Orland, Calif. -- The Orland City Council has approved a project that will impact a major road in the city.
Cal Trans funded a study for the the Walker street, Streetscape plan to assess what kind of improvements can be made.
The Streetscape project won't go into effect for another few years while funding is still being secured.
This new development is exciting for the community because of how it is expected to enhance the local businesses and potential new community members.
The improvements are expected to go from east of Interstate 5 between 6th and 2nd streets in Orland.
Plans include narrowing the streets so crosswalks won't be as wide. Street lighting and landscaping will also be enhanced, all done in an effort to beautify the area and create a more vibrant atmosphere.
Storm drains will be improved as a part of the project's underground infrastructure planning.
The project is estimated to cost 8.5 million dollars.
