The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is proposing a safety improvement project on Highway 70 in Yuba County near Marysville between
Laurellen Road and the South Honcut Creek Bridge. There have been a higher number of fatal collisions along this section of highway compared to the statewide average,
qualifying these locations for safety improvements. The proposed improvements are expected to reduce the collision rates at these locations.
