REDDING – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans District 2), in conjunction with All-American Construction, Inc., is preparing to begin work on the Golden Chain Overlay Project on State Route 49 in Plumas County. The $1.3 million project will replace asphalt concrete surfacing and place a thin hot mix asphalt overlay from the Sierra/Plumas County line to the junction with State Route 70. The project will also improve shoulders in the project area.
Construction activities are planned to start on July 19. Motorists will encounter one-way traffic control with up to 15-minute delays, Monday through Friday between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. 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 end of August.
Construction projects are subject to changes without prior notice. Caltrans and its contractors do our best to keep the public informed.
