Skyway Corridor Study

Project Information

BCAG staff, working with the Town of Paradise and the consulting firm Whitlock & Weinberger Transporation, Inc. (W-Trans), completed a transportation study for the Skyway corridor, in March 2009.

The purpose of the study was to work with staff from the Town of Paradise and area residents, established community-based organizations (CBOs), and other stakeholders to develop a community supported plan that addressed safety, circulation, pedestrian, and aesthetic deficiencies within the existing corridor.

The study focused on the segment of the Skyway in Paradise from Neal Road to Wagstaff Road.  This section of the Skyway includes the downtown business district of Paradise and is completely within the Town's Redevelopment Area (RDA).
      The Final Report for the Skyway Corridor Study was accepted by the Paradise Town Council on February 24, 2009.  See the Final Report section below for a complete digital copy.
