Active Transportation Plan

City of Mt Shasta

Mount Shasta, CA

Introduction and Background

The City of Mt. Shasta is a small rural community set at the base of Mount Shasta in Northern California. The City is considered an underserved community due to its rural setting and low household income level. The City has a population of 3,247, while the County of Siskiyou has a total population is 44,151. Resources within Siskiyou County are limited. The closest major city, Redding, is located 61 miles south and is in Shasta County. Of the 3,247 Mt. Shasta residents, a significant portion live in neighborhoods along the Lake Street corridor or just to the northeast or southwest of Lake Street. As part of the development of the Lake Street Complete Streets (LSCS) Plan the City will work with the community to develop complete street improvement recommendations along Lake Street from Interstate-5 (I-5) to Shasta Avenue for approximately 1.2 miles.

The Lake Street Complete Streets Plan is being funded through a Caltrans Transportation Planning Grant award totaling $156,577. The grant was awarded to:

  • Develop a comprehensive Complete Streets Plan that will identify progressive solutions to improve multi-mobility, accessibility, and safety along Lake Street.
  • Analyze existing conditions, current infrastructure and gaps, safety concerns, accessibility barriers, and general mobility needs for the community.
  • Identify key stakeholders whose input is desired throughout the course of the Plan.
  • Facilitate open community engagement throughout the duration of the Plan's development to ensure that the improvements reflect the needs of the Mt. Shasta community.
  • Identify complete streets improvements on Lake Street to include protected bicycle and pedestrian facilities, gateway features, wayfinding designs, pedestrian-level lighting and other streetscape amenities.
  • Develop streetscape alignment and conceptual designs for the desired improvements.
  • Analyze preliminary feasibility constraints, as well as identification of environmental, right of way, and/or funding challenges.
  • Prepare a comprehensive implementation and funding strategies to position the project components for future funding.

The City will negotiate a contract with the top-rated respondent, and if unsuccessful will consider other submissions in order of ranking.

The LSCSP, will include public outreach to the following groups: the City Council, local schools, active transportation groups, the Tribes, local businesses, and low-income, non-English speakers to ensure that all stakeholders have their input on the Plan.

The design will likely include traffic calming, intersection treatments, protected active transportation facilities, pedestrian-level street lighting and the development of educational guidebooks on safe walking and biking practices.
