Siskiyou County Regional Transportation Plan Update
A Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) is a long-range (20 year) planning document used to identify transportation infrastructure and program projects for a designated region. This document is required by statute and takes guidance from the guidelines prepared by the California Transportation Commission on a regular basis. In order to qualify for State and Federal transportation funds, projects must be in the Regional Transportation Plan. Long range planning of this sort shapes the future of our region’s as stated in the latest, 2010 RTP Guidelines.
The Siskiyou County Local Transportation Commission (SCLTC) was created pursuant to Title 3 of G.C. Section 2935 in 1972. The SCLTC is the Regional Transportation Planning Agency (RTPA) responsible for transportation planning and funding throughout Siskiyou County.
We are responsible for the development and option of the Regional Transportation Plan and Regional Transportation Improvement Program as required by state law.
State highways in Siskiyou County include SR 3, SR 97, SR 89 and Interstate 5. The streets and highways are maintained by various agencies throughout the County including community service districts, nine incorporated cities, the Siskiyou County Road Department, and Caltrans.
SCLTC’s office is located in Yreka, California.
