State Allocates 3 Million Towards Road Construction – Lassen and Plumas Projects Scheduled


Plumas and Lassen County will benefit from the 3 million dollars the state has allocated for transportation infrastructure. The county will see two projects funded with the money that is the Beckwourth CAMP project near Portola from west of Grizzly rd to about a mile west of summit school drive. This project will include pavement rehabilitation, added intersection lighting, upgraded signage, and guardrails, as well as improved drainage systems. The second project would include the Almanor West rehab from Canyon Dam to about half a mile north of HWY 147 to SR 36. The roadway will see rehabilitation to include new guardrails and signs, improved drainage systems, and will build a near 4-mile bike lane.

Lassen County will have a project to retrofit the Pit river bridge for earthquakes, near Beiber at the Pit River bridge and overflow as well as the Riverside drive reconstruction and bike lane build.

With funds from SB1 road repairs construction projects are expected to progress through phases more quickly with the availability of the funds. Visit the website for more information on transportation projects funded through SB1.
