REDDING, Calif. - The City of Redding is teaming up with the Shasta Regional Transportation Agency to apply for a grant to bring an upgrade to Victor Avenue.
The grant would fund major walking and biking improvements along Victor Avenue and a part of Cypress Avenue.
Improvements would include paved sidewalks, separated multi-use trails, and marked bicycle lanes.
Action News Now spoke to Assistant Public Works Director, John Abshier about the project.
"Well, transportation is how people get from place to place," Abshier said. "Whether it be work or shopping, that's a critical component that can add to the quality of life to the residents of this city. When you provide an attractive facility, it brings out people and encourages them to walk and ride their bikes."
City officials said the project would cost about $7 million. They plan to apply for the grant in the spring.
The city said input from the public is welcome.
