101 is a statewide highway, running generally north to south, with its northern
terminus at the Oregon/Washington border and southern terminus at the Oregon/California
border. State highways typically provide inter-urban and inter-regional
mobility and are characterized by high-speed, continuous flow operation.
The study area is a
roughly five-mile stretch of U.S. 101 from the southern edge of the Chetco
River (the southern boundary of Brookings) south to the Oregon/California
border. This area is a statewide highway, a scenic byway, part of the National
Highway System and within the Smith River Rancheria Tribe’s area of interest.
Plan is being developed for several reasons. The California Department of
Transportation (Caltrans), in conjunction with the Smith River Rancheria Tribe,
recently completed a Road Safety Audit (RSA) of the 10-mile section of U.S. 101
immediately south of the Oregon/California border. The corridor has two
Safety Priority Index System crash locations over the past two years.
