The City of Eureka has received a Caltrans Sustainable Communities Grant (SCG) for multimodal transportation design, planning and technical assistance for the completion of a multimodal plan. The project area is located between J and E Streets from 6th Street to Harris Street with the focus on H and I Streets. The multimodal plan will look at these north-south transportation corridors within the City for enhancing safety and mobility for all modes of transportation.
The City of Eureka Development Services and Public Works Departments are collaborating with Redwood Community Action Agency to engage residents, youth, and local businesses in re-envisioning H and I Streets and potentially adjacent north-south routes to improve safety for all users and foster vibrant neighborhoods and business districts.
Resident, youth, and local business participation will be integral to the success of this project. The City and Redwood Community Action Agency (RCAA) will conduct public outreach efforts to engage the community, and receive input to understand the diverse needs of the community and also to solicit input on the development of the alternatives.

Included in the objectives and goals for the project is the identification of at least three conceptual design alternatives for improved mobility, safety and user experience for all modes within the project area with the focus on H and I Streets in the City of Eureka. In addition will be the completion of a Multimodal Plan for the project area with the focus on H and I Streets and the north-south transportation corridors within the city for enhanced safety and mobility for walking, biking, accessing transit and motor vehicles.
The City of Eureka hosted a community meeting for Eureka North South Multimodal Corridor Plan project on Wednesday, April 11 to unveil design concepts that could improve safety for all modes of travel along H and I Street and adjacent roadways. The design concepts presented at the meeting are available to view here. Comments on these initial design concepts are welcome and can be directed to Scott Ellsmore, City Traffic Project Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org or (707) 441-4181.
The project team will refine concepts base in part upon community feedback and input from the April 11 meeting. The ENSCP plan will be finalized this summer and will include a presentation to the Eureka City Council. Email Scott at email@example.com to sign up for project updates.
