Linc Housing Project Goes Before Committee Next Week

Richardson Grove Appeal Filed
The long legal battle over the highway expansion project seems far from over.

Another High-Speed Chase

Reminder: Make Your Street Story Reports
723 reports (and counting) have been made in Humboldt County so far. If you see or experience a hazard, near-miss or collision on the street, make your Street Story report here. CRTP uses reports to advocate for change, and local agencies use them to apply for grants and prioritize improvements. Your reports are important!
