FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MARYSVILLE – Community members are invited to view a virtual open house video presentation for the State Routes 70-99 Comprehensive Multimodal Corridor Plan (SR 70-99 CMCP).
The virtual open house outlines the process for developing the SR 70-99 CMCP, which is a long-term transportation plan for the corridors in Butte, Sacramento, Sutter and Yuba counties. Future projects are 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. The CMCP also is developed with equity in mind to minimize impacts to underserved communities.
In addition to the virtual open house, a survey is currently underway through September 30, 2021 to solicit valuable feedback from community members that will guide future project development.
The SR 70-99 CMCP covers approximately 90 miles of the SR 99 corridor — beginning in Sacramento County at the junction of I-5, ending in Butte County at the junction with the north end of Esplanade in Chico. It also covers 56 miles of SR 70, beginning at the SR 99 junction in Sutter County, through Yuba County and ending at the junction of SR 149 in Butte County. The corridor also includes the entire 5-mile stretch of SR 149 in Butte County, connecting both SR 70 and SR 99.
The SR 70-99 CMCP website is live and will include the virtual open house video and public survey through September 30 at Hwy70-99CorridorPlan.
