- SR 70 Binney Junction Roadway Rehabilitation and Complete Streets Project
- The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), in cooperation with Yuba County, City of Marysville, and Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR), proposes to rehabilitate State Route 70 (SR 70), in the City of Marysville, from 0.1 mile south of 14th Street (PM 14.8) to just north of Cemetery Road (PM 15.7) in Yuba County. The project will provide a complete streets aspect, rehabilitation of existing pavement, reduce future traffic congestion, improve operations and safety, and comply with current Caltrans, UPRR, and local agency standards. The project’s proposed improvements are to rehabilitate the existing roadway and two-way left-turn lane (TWLTL) structural sections, construct two traffic storage/auxiliary lanes, standard shoulders, and standard sidewalks. These improvements will conform to 3 lanes at the recently constructed Simmerly Slough Bridge project. Due to the high number of accidents, the project will replace and lengthen two UPRR structures, the Marysville Underpass and the Binney Junction Underpass. Lowering existing SR 70 under the Marysville Underpass and the Binney Junction Underpass will be required to meet current vertical clearance standards and provide adequate sight distance. With the implementation of standard shoulders and sidewalks, this will provide complete street elements that will allow pedestrians and bicyclist to safely access SR 70 through the City of Marysville. The existing east levee north of Binney Junction to Cemetery Road will be relocated to accommodate the proposed project improvements. In addition, the intersections of SR 70/East 24th Street and SR 70/16th Street will be signalized, with access to and from 17th Street being removed.
