State Route 20 Timbuctoo Roadway Project

Project Facts

What We Are Doing 

  • Upgrade a two-mile section of State Route 20 from the Yuba River Bridge to about one-third of a mile east of Smartsville Road
  • Straighten curves on a section of the highway
  • Widen segments of highway to create uniform 12-foot wide lanes
  • Widen shoulders to a standard 8-foot width
  • Construct a new bridge on the realigned section of highway
  • Increase sight distances for motorists traveling on the highway

The Reason For The Project

  • Roadway no longer meets current 55-mph highway design standards
  • Existing alignment and shoulder widths no longer meet current highway design standards

Project Cost

Total cost is estimated at $55.4 million in state and federal funds.
