Humboldt Baykeeper has been following Caltrans' Eureka-Arcata 101 Corridor Safety Improvement Project since 2007, when the Draft Environmental Impact Report was released. Caltrans proposes to improve safety along this 8-mile stretch of highway adjacent to the Humboldt Bay shoreline between Arcata and Eureka.


A presentation on the U.S. Highway 101 safety corridor drew mixed reaction from the Arcata City Council and the public at a council meeting on Wednesday.

Councilwoman Susan Ornelas, who was originally opposed to the proposed safety improvement project, said she is supportive if the bay trail, which would run from Arcata to Eureka, is incorporat­ed.


Humboldt Baykeeper commissioned an independent review of the 101 Corridor Improvement Project by Michael Moule, PE and TE, and Magnus Barber of Nelson\Nygaard Consulting Associates, Inc. Moule specializes in improving conditions for non-motorized users without degrading motor vehicle capacity and balancing the needs of all users within the public right of way.
