Document Description
The California Department of Transportation (Clatrans) proposes to improve the Buckhorn Grade on State Route 299 in Shasta Trinity and shasta Counties from 2.0 miles west of the Shasta-Trinity County line to the western boundary of the Whiskeytown-Shasta Trinity National Recreation Area. Although the official project limits extended into Trinity County (PM 70.2/72.2), construction will only occur on the Buckghorn Grade portion of State Route 299 (PM 0.0/R7.6) in Shasta County. Construction activities in Trinity County will be limited to placement of signs and traffic control. The project will realign the roadway along the existing alignments. improvements include standard roadway and soulder widths, passing/climbing lanes, 8 percent maximum grade and an alignment with a 40 to 50 mph design speed (depending on the alternative selected).
