"Safe Streets for Paradise" kicks off in effort to make 18 town corridors safer
PARADISE, Calif. - In an effort to identify and make roads safer in Paradise, the Town of Paradise hosted two workshops in its "Safe Streets for Paradise" campaign Thursday.
The workshop helped officials identified 18 corridors that have a history of crashes.
The goal of the entire campaign is to evaluate roadway safety across those corridors, solicit public feedback and devise and fund improvements.
"We want the safest community we can provide. Whether that's sidewalks, bike paths or wider shoulders for people to have a clear recovery zone so they can not go into a ditch or power pole. So that's what we're looking for with the type of improvements we can move forward," said Public Works Director Marc Mattox.
Independent firms have been hired through a state grant to help pay for the analysis of the roads.
