Garden Highway Improvements

Yuba City, California

The City of Yuba City is proposing to widen Garden Highway from Lincoln Road to Winship Road in order to construct Class II bike lanes, sidewalks, curb and gutter, as well as a storm drain line. Improvements will be constructed on both sides of Garden Highway (north and southbound directions). Additionally, a continuous left-turn lane will be added. Proposed improvements are needed to provide community members with safe, reliable, and continuous bicycle routes within the City, and to provide networking bicycle transportation systems with adjacent communities. Foothill Associates’ environmental planners prepared a Preliminary Environmental Study (PES) and acted as liaison in support of Caltrans documentation of the NEPA Categorical Exclusion. Foothill coordinated the ASR/HPSR for Section 106 Consultation and conducted an Arborist Survey documenting all trees within the project alignment.
