News & Notes

Modesto officials will speak today about the proposal to put a stretch of College Avenue on a “road diet,” a traffic-calming technique used to slow and improve the flow of traffic, reduce crashes, and make streets friendlier for pedestrians and bicyclists. The meeting of the College Area Neighborhood Alliance will start at 6 p.m. at Emanuel Lutheran Church, 324 College Ave. City officials unveiled the proposal last month at a meeting at the church. College Avenue is four lanes. The diet would change the lane markings so there would be one lane in each direction for cars and a center lane for left turns. The extra space would be used for more space for parked cars, bike lanes and a buffer between the bike lanes and traffic. More information is available at www.modestogov.com/ced and www.canamodesto.org or by emailing info@canamodesto.org.
