Alta worked with the City of Coalinga to develop an Active Transportation Plan that includes recommendations for walking, biking, Safe Routes to School, and traffic calming.
The plan is implementation focused and provides prioritized recommendations and a cost-benefit analysis that helped the City compete for grant funding. Alta also helped conduct community engagement to inform the development of the plan. A key element of this work was providing conceptual designs for a trail that will loop around Coalinga. Locations where the trail crosses Highways 198 and 33 were particularly important, as they required traffic calming and appropriate intersection improvements to make crossings safer. These locations also serve as important gateway locations.
