In 2011, Green DOT owner Jeff Schwein prepared the Middle Klamath River Community Transportation Plan with grant funding from the Caltrans planning grant program. During this project, the Red Cap Road Bicycle and Pedestrian project was identified as a priority project connecting tribal housing and others to the critical needs and community core of Orleans in Humboldt County. Following up on that identification and conceptual design, Green DOT worked with the Humboldt County Association of Governments and the County of Humboldt to develop a funding strategy. We were instrumental in programming $460K in the 2012 STIP to get the project moving forward. Once the environmental and design work was complete, Green DOT prepared a grant application for the Federal Highway Administration’s Tribal Transportation Safety Program (TTSP) and was awarded the largest grant in the country of $872K. This completed the final piece of a cooperatively funded $2.5 million bicycle and pedestrian project combined with a bridge replacement project to provide access and encouragement for biking and walking in this disadvantaged community.
