Caltrans Invites Public Input On Plan To Improve Highway 70 Safety

Nov 6, 2017

The public is invited to weigh in on plans to reduce the number and severity of accidents along State Route 70 north of Marysville.

The nearly $102 million proposal would widen shoulders, straightening curves, move utility poles and add a continuous center left-turn-lane from just north of Marysville to the county line.

Caltrans spokesman Gilbert Mohtes-Chan said that long range plans call for the roadway to have two lanes in each direction.

The public is invited to learn more about the plan and offer feedback at a meeting scheduled for Thursday evening from 5 to 7. The meeting will be held at the Caltrans office in Marysville, 703 B Street.
