Caltrans makes transportation decisions that affect the entire state. The 18 voting members of the California Bicycle Advisory Committee (CBAC) provide Caltrans with input on state-wide bicycle policies, programs, facility designs, and other bicycle issues. Shasta's voice on the committee is important because Shasta's representative speaks to regional perspectives and issues that Caltrans must weigh when considering design solutions and approaches that can work across California.
In August 2013, the Shasta Regional Transportation Agency's Associate Transportation Planner, Keith Williams, was selected to serve on the CBAC, representing the issues and opportunities of people, families, and businesses from the Shasta region who stand to benefit from increased bicycle accessibility and safer connections.
Shasta County is largely rural and shares similar cycling-related challenges to neighboring regions of the North State. As the sole representative from the North State on the CBAC, Keith is also interested in bicycle issues challenging Shasta's neighbors. If you have a cycling-related idea or concern, or you would like to learn more about what CBAC is currently recommending, please contact Keith.
