Projects include Safe Routes to School; improvements to Niblick, Creston, North River
PASO ROBLES, CA, Thursday, October 27, 2022 – The City of Paso Robles was recently recommended for a $13.8 million grant to improve the Niblick Corridor from Creston Road to Spring Street. The project will enhance Niblick’s four lanes while providing separate facilities for bicyclists and pedestrians.
The planned improvements include paving, infill sidewalk, signage, striping, and a class I bicycle and pedestrian path along the north side of Niblick Road. This is the most recent of four transportation-related grants the City was recently awarded.
Four recent grant awards will enhance traffic circulation, and student and bicycle safety:
These grants were in part made possible by the City Council adopted planning documents such as the Niblick and Creston Corridor Plans, Local Roadway Safety Plan, and 2018 General Plan Circulation Element.” I can’t stress enough how these adopted planning documents are the key to the City’s success”, said City Engineer David Athey. “The grant agencies want to know that there is a larger plan in place and that projects are supported by the community”, Athey said. This is the second transportation related grant that the City has received for Niblick Road. The City also received a crosswalk enhancement grant in 2021.
