In December of 2023 the California Transportation Commission (CTC) approved $35 million in funding for the SR 49 Grass Valley Evacuation Route Project to widen Highway 49 between Ponderosa Pines Way and Wolf Road. The project will construct shoulders and a center two-way left turn lane to allow safer entering and exiting the highway and reduce wildfire evacuation times.

Highway 49 Corridor Evacuation and Safety Concerns Video

NCTC contracted with videographer Jeff Litton to prepare this video highlighting the key concerns and documenting the importance of funding improvements in the Highway 49 corridor, to assist in our efforts to advocate for state and federal funding for the needed safety, evacuation, and operational improvements in the SR 49 corridor. This effort was done in coordination with the County of Nevada and key stakeholders including the Citizens for Highway 49 Safety, Fix49.org, Nevada County Coalition of Firewise Communities, CAL FIRE Nevada-Yuba-Placer Unit, and the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office.

Nevada County Transportation Commission and Placer County Transportation Planning Agency are working in coordination with Caltrans District 3 to develop the SR 49 Comprehensive Multi-modal Corridor Plan (CMCP) to update the previous corridor plans. 
NCTC and Caltrans are soliciting valuable feedback from community members by February 15th on proposed projects to improve travel on the State Route 49 corridor between Auburn and Grass Valley.
Information on the plan and projects is now available for review at www.Hwy49CorridorPlan.com.

Welcome to the Nevada County Transportation Commission (NCTC) website.  Our website is organized to give you convenient access to a wide range of information about NCTC and the services we provide in both regional transportation planning and airport land use planning.

The Mission of the NCTC is to Plan, Communicate and Coordinate with the citizens and decision makers of Nevada County, Grass Valley, Nevada City, Truckee, and Caltrans to create a balanced regional transportation system. 

This includes administration of regional, state, and federal funding for projects related to roadways, bridges, public transportation services, railways, airports, bicycle facilities, and pedestrian amenities. Throughout this process the NCTC seeks to protect the rural qualities and historic character of Nevada County.

In developing these transportation solutions, the NCTC initiates design concepts, engineering feasibility studies, environmental studies, and proposes funding sources to construct transportation improvements. Once these tasks are completed, projects are turned over to Caltrans or to a local jurisdiction for construction.
