SRTA was awarded a Caltrans Strategic Partnerships Grant of $500,000 for the State Route (SR) 273 Northern Section Multimodal Corridor (NSMC) Plan. The plan will evaluate needs and prioritize projects on the segment between Canyon Road and I-5. Caltrans District 2 has received a tentative award of $500,000 to study the remainder of the corridor.
In coordination with SRTA, Caltrans District 2 submitted an application for a Special Studies grant to fund a similar effort on SR-273 between Canyon Road and the southern terminus at I-5 (roughly 7 miles). Their grant of $500,000 has been tentatively awarded. SRTA is seeking to consolidate funds from the two grants under one procurement to minimize overhead costs and to ensure coordination and consistency between the two projects.
Through this planning process, SRTA aims to reduce mobility barriers for people and goods, enhance safety for all users, improve transit opportunities, and strengthen the resiliency against extreme weather events. Given the corridor’s regional significance, the effort will require considerable outreach to and input from local jurisdictions, stakeholders, and the general public. The grant award includes resources for targeted outreach to disadvantaged communities.
Once SRTA receives a notice to proceed from Caltrans, staff will begin to develop a RFP to procure a consultant to assist with this effort. Please bookmark this page and check back for updates.
