Penn Valley Drive Safety Improvements

Project Description

This project would widen parts of Penn Valley Drive between Spenceville Road and Squirrel Creek to improve road safety, and would overlay this segment of Penn Valley Drive to address poor pavement conditions. This two-lane roadway accesses a number of high-traffic commercial lots and provides primary access to several residential developments. The Nevada County Department of Public Works has identified this half-mile road segment as having an unusually high accident rate (17 accidents over 5 years).
