Document Description
Caltrans will install a Highway Advisory Radio Station (HAR) and three signs on I-5 near Corning in Tehama County. The HAR will be placed in the southeast corner of the olive orchard that is part of the northbound (NB) Coring Rest Area (SRRA) at PM 10.25. Up to eight olive trees may be removed to make room for the approximately 100' diameter area needed for the HAR. A concrete pad, approximately 6.6' x 13.2', will be installed to support a control panel and a 49' tall antennae supported on a 3' tall steel pedestal. An approach road will be created to allow access from Edith Avenue. Three message signs with flashing beacons will be installed on I-5. The first will be at PM 3.52 at the Kirkwood Road. Overcrossing (OC). The sign will be placed on the east side of the highway just south of the OC. A utility panel and back-up battery system will be installed on a 6.6' x 13.2' concrete pad just north of the OC. Trenches will be excavated to tie-in the utility panel to existing utilities and the beaconed sign. Other work at this location will include extending a culvert along I-5 and creating a small pullout for maintenance access. The other two flashing beacon signs will be located in the interstate median at PM 10.0. One will be approximately 200' north and another approximately 250' south of the Gallagher Avenue OC. Underground lines will tie in both signs to a utility panel set up on the east side of the freeway north of Gallagher Avenue. The panel will access power and home connections from an adjacent, existing traffic count station. All three signs will be supported by two wooden posts cemented in the ground.
