Fresno County with the ATRC
Go Human partnered with the Active Transportation Resource Center (ATRC) from Caltrans to expand the Go Human Kit of Parts and make it accessible to partners across the state of California. ATRC hired California Walks to implement the Kit of Parts Pilot Program. California Walks worked with the Fresno County Department of Public Health and Every Neighborhood Partnership to develop and facilitate temporary safety demonstrations of a protected bike lane and a creative crosswalk in Southwest Fresno.
The project created opportunities for residents to experience the proposed safety improvements in live traffic settings and provide feedback to support the potential implementation of improvements.
The City of Fresno is currently identifying walking and biking safety improvements for California Avenue and the California Avenue/M.L.K. Jr Boulevard intersection, as part of the California Complete Streets project funded by the 2021 Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) grant program. Proposed improvements include a protected bike lane and completing the sidewalk network.
