Document Description
Installation of safety lighting at the intersection of State Routes 299 and 395 in Modoc County approximately five miles east of Alturas. Five luminaries will be installed within the three way intersection. Underground electrical conduit will be connected to an existing power pole within the highway right of way. The purpose of the project is to improve nighttime safety at the intersection. The project is located in a sparsely populated area consisting of public lands, rural home sites, and agricultural land. The railroad is located northwest of SR 299 and runs parallel to the highway. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) property and Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) property adjoin the project boundaries on the southeast side of SR 299 and adjacent to SR 395. Minor ground disturbance will occur as a result of trenching for conduit and excavations for light standards. Vegetation is sparse within the project limits and disturbance will be minimal. The project will be confined to State right-of-way.
