State Route 16 Safety Improvement Project
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR
Document Description
The project is located in Yolo County on SR 16 between Brooks and I-505. This project was initiated in response to a high number of collisions in the project area. Caltrans proposes to improve the safety of this section of highway by constructing 8 ft shoulders and a 20 ft clear recovery zone on both sides of the highway for the length of the project (excluding the towns of Capay and Esparto). The project will also provide left-turn channelization, intersection improvements at various public road connections, vertical and horizontal alignment improvements, and improved flood protection between Esparto and I-505. This project has one build alternative (Alternative A) and the no build alternative. The proposed project would require new right of way.
