Richardson Grove Highway Widening- Public Meeting Tonight

Repost from an email below. Some people doubt that the stretch of Hwy. 101 through Richardson Grove can be made passable for bigger trucks without cutting down Oldgrowth trees. Caltrans claims they can through re-alignment of certain sections. The information provided at the event may help folks figure that one out.

Caltrans is holding a public meeting Wednesday, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Wharfinger Building to provide information on two upcoming Caltrans projects in Humboldt County, the Richardson Grove Improvement Project and the 3rd and R Street Median Project in Eureka.

The purpose of the Richardson Grove Improvement Project is to allow larger, industry-standard sized trucks access to the North Coast from the south. This project proposes some adjustments to the current alignment of U.S. Highway 101 at Richardson Grove without removing any old-growth redwood trees.

...There will be informational displays on both projects and project staff present to answer questions. A formal presentation on the Richardson Grove Improvement Project, including a question-and-answer period, will take place from 6 to 7 p.m.

...The Wharfinger building is at 1 Marina Way in Eureka. For more
information, contact Kim Floyd, Caltrans Project Manager, at 707-441-5739.
