Law enforcement and other public officials are using the Highway 70 stage to draw a line against unsafe driving during the holidays.

Since 2010 Highway 70 between Marysville and Oroville has been the site of 33 fatalities, making it one of northern California’s most dangerous traffic corridors.

In 2017 alone, eleven people have lost their lives in traffic accidents on this highway.

Caltrans has developed a thorough safety improvement plan for the Highway 70 corridor, but most of the work is still waiting to be funded. Caltrans officials will outline the plan.

The meeting will be Monday November 20th at 1 p.m. on Highway 70 at District 10 Dryers, 8923 Highway 70 about 4 miles north of Marysville.
