Document Description
The proposed project is located in Trinity County, approximately 7.5 miles east of Weaverville, at 040° 40' 04.6" N 122" 53"25.0" W. Improvements will take place between 1.1 miles east of the Indian Creek Bridge to 0.18 mile east of Steel Bridge Road, on SR-299 between Kilometer Post (KP) 97.8/98.6 [Post Miles (PM) 60.8/61.2]. This project will improve mainline operations on SR-299 while improving access to Steel Bridge Road. Improvements include construction a left turn lane in the eastbound direction and a right turn lane in the westbound direction of SR-299 to facilitate safe access to private residences and properties on Steel Bridge Road. Sight distance will also be improved at the intersection of Steel Bridge Road and SR-299 be realigning the intersection to eliminate a tight curve that motorists currently cannot see around. This will be accomplished by removing earthen material form the steep bank at the curve and redepositing the material in areas that accomplish a smooth transition through the travel way, shoulders and clear recovery areas. Shoulders will be widened to current standards for emergency use and clear recovery zone will be established. A school bus stop will be constructed on the northwest corner of Steel Bridge Road and SR-299. Existing culverts will be extended and improved as needed thought-out the project area. An existing livestock under crossing will be extended. This under crossing is currently used by wildlife to access the Trinity River. All cut and fill material will be balanced; therefore no barrow or disposal site will be employed for this project. All staging of material and equipment will be on site and within the Environmental Study Limits (ESL).
