The proposed project would widen and reconstruct Donner Pass Road, improving the structural issues and reducing the amount of maintenance required on the road. The project will also provide a safer bicycling route and better access to trails that connect to other recreational amenities to the north and south. During the winter the widening can provide additional snow storage and improve access to winter recreational destinations. Nevada County received a California Federal Lands Access Program (FLAP) funding for this project in 2015. The project will be managed and delivered by the Central Federal Lands Highway Division (CFLHD).
Primarily funded through the Federal Lands Access Program.
