In August Caltrans came to an agreement with OUTFRONT Media (formerly CBS Outdoor) to remove 10 billboards along U.S. Highway 101 between Eureka and Arcata by the end of the year.
The negotiations were initiated as part of the development and eventual permitting of the Eureka-Arcata Corridor Improvement project. The agreement also benefited the Humboldt Bay Trail, as some of the billboards conflicted with the location of the proposed trail.
The removal of these 10 billboard will bring the total up to 17 that have been or will be taken down in the area in relation to this project.
More information about the project is available here.
