Caltrans Hosts Open House for SR 70 Paving Project in Portola and Cromberg


Portola and Cromberg are being prepared for a large-scale paving project coming to SR 70. Caltrans District 2 officials will hold an open house this evening on pre-construction operations to help answer the community’s questions.

The Cromberg Combined project in Plumas County is on State Route 70, from just west of Cromberg to east of Portola. This project will reduce distressed roadway, improve ride quality, extend pavement life for a minimum of 20 years, and improve safety for all modes of transportation. Construction on this project is expected to begin in June of 2024 and last three construction seasons.

Caltrans District 2 and Mercer-Fraser Company will host the pre-construction open house for the Cromberg Combined Project at the Portola Branch Library on today from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
