For Immediate Release

Marysville – Caltrans District 3 is conducting an online survey soliciting valuable feedback from community members that will guide future project development to improve travel on the State Route 49 (SR-49) corridor between Auburn and Grass Valley.

The survey is available at Hwy49CorridorPlan with public input requested by August 15, 2021.

Survey results will be incorporated into the SR-49 Comprehensive Multimodal Corridor Plan (CMCP) being developed by Caltrans and its corridor partners, including local governments, community groups and transportation planning agencies in Placer and Nevada counties.

The CMCP will develop a strategy and identify future projects along the 25-mile corridor aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving livability in the community through operational improvements, technological advancements and increased multimodal options such as bike and pedestrian facilities, local and express bus routes, and passenger and freight rail.
