Caltrans to hold Feb. 16 open house on Highway 20 and 29 safety project

LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – Caltrans invites the public to attend an informational open house to review a proposed project to improve the safety of the intersection of Highway 20 and Highway 29 near Upper Lake.

The drop-in style open house will be held on Thursday, Feb. 16, from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Upper Lake Middle School gymnasium, 725 Old Lucerne Road, Upper Lake.

The purpose of the project is to improve the safety of the Highway 20 and Highway 20 i intersection by reducing the frequency and severity of collisions.

The project is needed because the collision rate at the intersection is 3.7 times greater than the statewide average for similar intersections, Caltrans reported.

Caltrans is considering two alternatives: installation of traffic signals or installation of a roundabout.

The agency said the public will have the opportunity to review displays on these alternatives.

Caltrans said its staff also will be available to answer questions and receive comments or suggestions at the event.
