INTERSTATE 5
Klamath River Bridge


WORK IN PROGRESS

A project north of Yreka is in progress. It includes widening, bridge rail upgrade, and undercrossing. Northbound and southbound traffic on Interstate 5 currently is under a 55 mph speed reduction with single lane closures in effect for both directions. Construction operations will continue throughout the winter unless extreme winter weather prevents Caltrans and its contractors to perform corresponding jobs.




INTERSTATE 5 Collier Rest Area – Water Treatment Facility

Among other construction improvements, a water treatment facility is being installed in the Randolph Collier Rest Area by I-5 north of Yreka. The rest area will remain open through the winter with minor impacts to traffic on Interstate 5.

South Weed Project

WORK IN PROGRESS

Between Weed/Mount Shasta (60+ miles North of Redding). Alternating lane closures. Expect minor delays and intermittent ramp closures due to construction operations including paving, striping and other, for about 12 miles, between Weed and Mt. Shasta. Construction operations will continue throughout the winter unless extreme winter weather prevents Caltrans and its contractors to perform corresponding jobs.

INTERSTATE 5
Shasta Viaduct

WORK IN PROGRESS

Southbound, 16 miles north of Redding. The Shasta Viaduct project on I-5 Sidehill will replace the existing bridge with an 800 ft long bridge over a 400 ft long arch. Motorists driving southbound are asked to slow down and follow the signs for one lane closure to the left. Motorists driving northbound won't be affected by this project. Construction operations will continue throughout the winter unless extreme winter weather prevents Caltrans and its contractors to perform corresponding jobs.

 


Lassen Lodge Project

STATE ROUTE 36
Lassen Lodge Safety Realignment Project

COMPLETED

East of Red Bluff, the State Route 36 at Lassen Lodge was opened the afternoon of Thursday, Nov 2, by Caltrans and its contractor Tullis, Inc. The traveling public can now enjoy a safe, realigned stretch of highway near Mineral and Lassen National Park. A Ribbon Cutting Ceremony was held on November 29 at the Lassen Park Headquarters off SR36. Enjoy the new roadway!

STATE ROUTE 36
Federal Highway Realignment Construction

WINTER SUSPENSION

West of Red Bluff. Realignment project between post mile 36.05 and 40.44 in Humboldt County (west of Dinsmore). Full highway closures have been suspended until April 1, 2018. Instead, one lane closures. Motorists can expect up to 30 minute delays under one-way traffic control/traffic signal, Monday - Sunday.

 


State Route 70STATE ROUTE 70
East of Twain - COMPLETED
Spring Garden Bridge - WINTER SUSPENSION


East of Twain - Temporary traffic signal for one-way traffic control. The signal is in place while storm damage repair to the retaining wall is completed. This project is completed.

Spring Garden Bridge - From Post Mile 50 to 51 and located approximately 5 miles East of Quincy. This project is in winter suspension and that means that there are no traffic restrictions and no work going on until the 2018 construction season which usually starts during the spring.


State Route 96

STATE ROUTE 96
Happy Camp

WORK IN PROGRESS

The road is open, all lanes. Motorists may encounter Caltrans employees doing work at various locations along State Route 96, and there may be traffic control operations with minimal delays at certain points. Caltrans is working on a long stretch of SR 96, repairing the road from winter storm damage. Construction operations will continue throughout the winter unless extreme winter weather prevents Caltrans and its contractors to perform corresponding jobs.


State Route 147

STATE ROUTE 147
Hamilton Branch Bridge - CLOSED

WORK IN PROGRESS

The road between Hamilton Branch and Clear Creek is closed. The bridge is located on SR 147. Detours are clearly marked via County Road A13 and SR 36. This closure will continue throughout the end of this year due to weather conditions and unexpected circumstances. Last year’s extremely wet winter conditions contributed to a slow start by the contractor and a change of method to remove the old bridge was necessary, thus more time is needed. Caltrans and its contractor are doing their best to reopen the currently closed road at the bridge by Christmas, but this is heavily dependent on weather.


Helena Fire Road RepairSTATE ROUTE 299
Emergency Project after the Helena Fire

COMPLETED/WINTER SUSPENSION

The road between Junction City and Helena is now open, as Caltrans and its contractor have efficiently worked on tree cutting, timber control and rock scaling after the Helena Fire. However, there is still work to be done. Work may continue next construction season but it also may be possible for motorists to encounter one or two days of work and its corresponding traffic control operations during this winter. In any case, we will update promptly.



Big French Creek

STATE ROUTE 299
Big French Creek

COMPLETED
OCASSIONAL WORK

This project is completed and that means traffic is back to normal. However, erosion control and touch up work will continue throughout this winter as necessary. The public will receive information promptly as to how long delays will be, if any. Currently, we anticipate Monday through Friday from 6AM to 6PM. No traffic delays overnight from 6PM to 6AM Monday through Friday. No delays and no work at all from Saturday at 6AM through Monday at 6AM.
