Project would link River Trail to downtown Redding
The city of Redding, California is proposing improvements to the Diestelhorst-to-downtown trail in order to connect the Sacramento River Trail to the downtown area as soon as next summer. The $2.6 million grant-funded project includes lighting along trails and routes, completion of sidewalk gaps, a cycle track and pedestrian path, pavement striping, parking, crosswalks, warning beacons, signs, and a refuge island for pedestrian crossing. There are three options for a short section of Riverside Drive between Court and Center streets: keep it open to cars in both directions, make it one-way only, or close it off entirely. The project coincides with several other plans for downtown Redding, including the development of a four-story mixed-use building by K2 Development Companies and potential funding for a similar project by K2 and the McConnell Foundation to replace the northern half of the downtown parking garage.
