I. SUMMARY

The City of Carson was awarded two Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) grants to design and install bike lanes on various streets throughout the City.
Project No. 1451 has $1,338,400.00 available in federal grant funds which can be used for both the design and construction of bike improvements on Figueroa Street, Main Street, Victoria Street, and Carson Street (Exhibit No. 1).

As part of KOA's work plan, they were required to hold community workshops and present their findings and recommendations. Given the current pandemic due to Covid-19, a website was created to serve as a virtual forum to inform and update the public about the project.
