Bike lanes will no longer end on "the dreaded curve" on Churn Creek!

Bike lanes will no longer end on "the dreaded curve" on Churn Creek!

Following Old Alturas and Buenaventura, Churn Creek between Bodenhamer and Palacio along Boulder Creek Elementary is getting full 7' bike lanes and some buffering! This section of road been one of the places that cyclist dread and tried to avoid due to almost no shoulder or bike lane combined with the high speeds and curve on the road. In addition to bike lanes, there will also be a rumble strip placed in the center of the road due to head-on collisions that have happened in the past.

This project is a huge connection that will see a massive increase in cycling traffic since the alternatives, Hilltop and Shasta View are very inconvenient detours that most people simply will not ride their bikes. Now they can comfortably and safely connect to Churn Creek, Dana, Hilltop businesses as well as the Rivertrail and everywhere it connects to!
