The City is currently developing plans to reconstruct an 18 block section of Shell Beach Road in downtown Shell Beach between Cliff Avenue (Dinosaur Caves Park) and Terrace Avenue (Shell Beach Elementary). Following the City's Complete Streets guidelines, the project will improve safety and livability in the community for all users of all ages and abilities by reconstructing the roadway, adding an 8 foot wide multi-use path to accommodate bicycles and pedestrians, and bring sidewalks into ADA-compliance. This multi-use path will create new options for bicycle commuters and bring economic and health benefits to communities along the path. The City will also be upgrading existing water infrastructure, and the undergrounding of existing overhead utilities.
The city's goal is to build and maintain Shell Beach Road for a healthy business district and vibrant neighborhood while designing for all modes of transportation to improve our health, safety and economy. Review the Shell Beach Road Improvements online.
