Document Description
Caltrans proposes operational and safety improvements to this segment of State Route 299, which include constructing a westbound passing lane, a westbound chain-off area, eastbound chain-on area, and increasing the road width to accommodate FHWA passing lane design standards near the Caltrans Buckhorn sandhouse at the above location. The proposed scope of work includes widening existing highway westbound lane approximately 35 feet, along the north side of the existing road. This will provide for a westbound passing lane, an illuminated chain-on area adjacent to a portion of the eastbound lane, eight-foot shoulders at the edge of each traveled way and 30 feet clear recovery zone adjacent to the westbound ETW. In addition, culverts will be extended and the drainage will be improved on the north side of the road, guardrail installed and signing and striping upgraded to meet current standards.
