Road Work Alert: When and Where You can Expect Delays- A-13 at SR36 & Bass Hill US395


Caltrans is gearing up to kick off the A-13 at Route 36 Safety Project in Plumas County. This project, set to commence near Chester, will span from just west of Bailey Creek Bridge to just east of County Road A-13.

This safety initiative’s main focus is installing a roundabout. This includes removing existing asphalt, making earthwork cuts, laying down asphalt concrete on various sections, and setting up concrete curbing. Furthermore, one utility pole will be relocated, new striping and landscaping will be added, and lighting and fresh signage will be installed.

Starting next Monday, May 13th, you will need to plan for one-way traffic control during the weekdays, which could potentially cause delays of up to 20 minutes. Night work might also occur to help move the project along. So, if your route takes you through this area, be sure to factor in some extra travel time.

The project timeline spans 85 working days, and, weather and operations permitting, it aims for completion by the end of September. Knife River and North Region Construction and Caltrans District 2 have extended their gratitude to the local communities for their understanding and cooperation during this project.

Additionally, another project is set to impact your commute. The Bass Hill rumble strip replacement project starts today on US 395.

Caltrans says you can prepare for minor delays from Bass Hill Road to Johnstonville Dump Rd. These delays should last no longer than 10 minutes. Crews will be replacing the existing rumble striping with rumble edging.

Work is expected to be completed by the end of this week.
