US 101 Corridor Plan
US 101 corridor PlanBrookings.jpg


US 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.  Statewide highways typically provide inter-urban and inter-regional mobility, and are characterized by high-speed, continuous flow operation.
 
The study area extends from the southern edge of the Chetco River, which constitutes the southern boundary of the City of Brookings (approximately mile post 358), south to the Oregon/California border (approximately mile point 363.11).  Land uses in the study area include urban from approximately mile point 358-359 – the Harbor Unincorporated Urban Area (Harbor) – and rural from Harbor south to the border.  US 101 in the study area is within the Smith River Rancheria Tribe’s area of interest, a statewide highway, scenic byway, Motor Carrier Transportation Division (MCTD) Route, and a part of the National Highway System.US 101 Corridor Plan Graphic.jpg

       
This 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 US 101 immediately south of the Oregon/California border.  The corridor has had two Safety Priority Index System (SPIS) locations over the past two years.
