State Route 37 Corridor Virtual Meeting: Planning & Environmental Linkages Study

State Route 37 Corridor Virtual Meeting: Planning & Environmental Linkages Study

State Route (SR) 37, a 21-mile vital transportation link in the region connecting four North Bay counties, is extremely vulnerable to flood-related closures due to sea level rise (SLR), and experiences a high level of congestion. Caltrans, Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC), and the four North Bay Area counties are partners in the Resilient SR 37 program with multiple studies addressing the corridor’s critical flooding, SLR, congestion, ecosystem connectivity, and multimodal issues.

Caltrans is preparing a comprehensive long-range study to identify the best solutions to address the corridor’s deficiencies, considering the corridor’s needs, and the very high sensitivity of the area. Following the conclusion of this on-going PEL study, Caltrans will initiate the environmental review process as the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA)/National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) lead agency.

The future of this critical transportation corridor demands finding solutions to current and future problems. It requires balancing transportation needs that enhance corridor resiliency against extreme events, while facilitating ecological resilience, adaptability, and function in the study area.

Join Caltrans and its partners to learn about the Planning & Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study, the Draft Purpose and Need Statement, and alternatives that may be considered at an upcoming virtual meeting on Wednesday, May 26, 2021, 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
