Help us re-envision State Route 273!

This collaborative, multi-year planning effort will develop recommendations for infrastructure improvements along State Route (SR) 273 that support safety and mobility for all travelers, beginning with an understanding of our local context, challenges, and needs. 

Envision 273 offers residents a unique opportunity to: 

  • Develop a vision for SR 273 for the next 100 years 
  • Reduce barriers to mobility 
  • Enhance safety, accessibility, and connectivity for all corridor users 
  • Achieve better compatibility between land use and corridor design 
  • Improve environmental sustainability and resiliency 
  • Position the region to successfully compete for implementation grant funds 

The planning process will involve robust public engagement, data-driven analysis, and the collaborative development of a long-term vision that will shape the corridor for years to come. SRTA and Caltrans District 2 will be coordinating closely with the cities of Anderson and Redding, Shasta County, Redding Rancheria, and others throughout the process. 

The SR 273 Multimodal Corridor Plan is funded primarily by: a $500,000 Strategic Partnerships grant (part of the Sustainable Transportation Planning Grants program) and $500,000 in funding through the State Planning and Research Part I Program, representing a total investment of $1 million in competitive state planning funds to help improve the Shasta Region. 

A successful planning effort will only be possible with robust community engagement and collaboration over the next two years. Residents and interested parties are encouraged to follow developments and engage with the effort via the project website at:
