Community members are invited to view a virtual open house video presentation for the Highway 49 Global Multimodal Corridor Plan (SR 49 CMCP).
The virtual open house describes the process of developing SR 49 CMCP, which is a long-term transportation plan for the Highway 49 corridor between Auburn and Grass Valley. Future projects aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve the livability of the community through operational improvements, technological advancements and increased multimodal options such as bicycle and pedestrian facilities, bus routes local and express and passenger and freight trains. The CMCP is also developed with a concern for equity in order to minimize the impacts on underserved communities.
In addition to the virtual open house, an investigation is currently underway through September 30, 2021 solicit valuable feedback from community members who will guide the future development of the project.
