U.S. 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.
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 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.
