The City of Modesto secured a Caltrans Community-Based Transportation Planning grant to fund a corridor study for Crows Landing Road. The Crows Landing corridor is economically active, although certain basic infrastructure and services are lacking. The street right-of-way is relatively wide and challenging for pedestrians due to the absence of sidewalks along much of the corridor length. The grant-funded corridor study accomplished the following goals and objectives:
- Plan for improved mobility and accessibility through enhanced mode choices and connectivity;
- Support the economy and facilitate economic development by establishing a vision for a vibrant commercial / mixed use transportation corridor, and by improving regional mobility and accessibility for people and freight;
- Enhance public safety through evaluation of travel mode opportunities and constraints, and identification of preferred improvements to make both motorized and non-motorized travel modes safer and more secure;
- Reflect community values as a result of extensive public input via workshops and review of draft documentation;
- Enhance the environment by promoting infill development and higher density within existing urbanized areas, thereby reducing farmland conversion and promoting energy conservation; and,
- Achieve consistency with the San Joaquin Valley Blueprint and AB32, SB375, and AB1358.
On February 10, 2015, City Council accepted the following Crows Landing Corridor Study.
