REDDING – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans District 2), in conjunction with Robert J. Frank Construction, Inc., is preparing to begin work on a highway lighting project on State Route 70 in Plumas County. The $230k project will install highway lighting at the Beckwourth chain on/off area near Beckwourth Calpine Road.
Construction activities are anticipated to begin on October 12th. Motorists may encounter one-way traffic control with up to 15-minute delays at times, Mondays-Fridays during daytime hours. Motorists are urged to slow down and drive carefully in and around construction areas, follow speed limit reductions in place, and allot extra time for delays. The project is currently anticipated to be completed by the early November.
Construction projects are subject to changes without prior notice. Caltrans and its contractors do our best to keep the public informed.
