Caltrans to hold Niles Canyon meeting
Submitted By Tracy Roth
In response to public concern about planned safety projects in Niles Canyon, Caltrans invited an independent panel of traffic-safety experts from the Federal Highway Administration to perform an independent Road Safety Assessment (RSA). Caltrans now is inviting the public to hear the findings of the RSA for State Route 84 in Niles Canyon on Monday, July 30 at 6:00 p.m. at Niles Elementary School.
The RSA team evaluated State Route 84's current accident data, traffic patterns and driving behaviors to determine if safety improvements are needed. The team will present its findings and recommendations at the meeting.
Additionally, a Value Analysis Team developed safety-solution concepts based on the recommendations of the RSA that take into consideration community and stakeholder feedback regarding environmental effects. Members of the Value Analysis Team will also report on their follow-up.
Caltrans invites the public to hear the results of the RSA and the Value Analysis studies and to provide feedback on these two studies.
Individuals, who require special accommodation (interpreters, accessible seating, documentation in alternative formats, etc.), are requested to contact the District Public Affairs Office, at (510) 286-4444 at least five days before the scheduled meeting date. TDD users may contact the California Relay Service TDD line at 1-800-735-2929 or Voice Line at 1-800-735-2922.
