Overview

The Madera County Transportation Commission (MCTC) and the City of Chowchilla received SB-1 Grant funding to incorporate multimodal and safety improvements, and perform a truck study, along the SR 233 corridor through the City of Chowchilla and surrounding areas. The SB-1 Sustainable Communities Planning Grant program assists agencies with local and regional multimodal transportation improvements with the hopes of encouraging the use of alternative transportation methods like walking, biking, public transit, rideshare, etc.

 

MCTC has hired TJKM Transportation Consultants to develop a Multimodal Corridor Plan for the SR 233 corridor. The development of the plan will require the following tasks:

  • Identification of Multimodal deficiencies

  • Identification of safety concerns

  • Existing Conditions Analysis

  • Crash Analysis

  • Develop Alternatives

The project team held it's first Pop-Up Event at the Chowchilla Memorial Healthcare District Harvest Festival on October 31, 2019. The purpose of this event was to spread the word about the SR 233/Robertson Boulevard Corridor Improvement Project to the general public and to receive more insight from community members. The community shared their concerns, needs, and ideas regarding improvements on Robertson Boulevard. The team also collected additional survey responses from the community. If you haven't had the chance to provide your input and would like to do so please fill out the survey here.

Please enjoy some images from the event below.

The first Community Workshop was held in collaboration between the City, MCTC, and consultant team on September 12, 2019. The project team introduced the project and preliminary findings to the community, then opened up the floor for input and discussion. The community had the opportunity to share any personal concerns or issues they experience when commuting on Robertson Boulevard. The project team invited the community to provide comments and suggestions on aerial boards of the study corridor and identify their top three priorities for improving the corridor. If you missed the meeting and would like to provide input, please do so in the Feedback section here. Also, please check out some materials from the first workshop below: 


We will be holding additional outreach meetings throughout phases of the project to continuously receive community feedback and address more concerns. We hope to see you at the next one.

The project team also asks for input via our survey. The survey is available now and can be taken below:
