Mobility & Streetscape Plan – Caltrans Sustainable Transportation Planning Grant Program
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) awarded the City of Pico Rivera a $322,000 grant for the Historic Whittier Boulevard Multi-Modal Revitalization Plan. This Plan will encompass the Circulation and Mobility chapter of the Specific Plan and will establish a multi-modal plan and streetscape design manual that will:
- Establish a collaborative vision and cross-sector constituency committed to the transformation of Whittier Boulevard into a high-quality multi-modal corridor utilizing Smart Mobility Framework and Complete Streets principles;
- Develop community-driven design concepts and implementation steps that improve conditions for walking, bicycling, transit and transit-supportive development to serve the needs of all modes and users;
- Conduct extensive public participatory processes to identify strategies that improve safety, promote active modes of transportation, support first and last-mile connections to transit, and promote infill and revitalization; and
- Support the State and Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy (RTP/SCS) goals of reducing vehicle miles traveled and GHG emissions, maximizing mobility and accessibility, preserving and ensuring a sustainable regional transportation system, protecting the environment and supporting healthy and equitable communities.
- The Program will be managed by CivicWell and the outreach and communications plan will be managed by Day One.
