Document Description
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) plans to improve a segment of the highway by reducing the steepness of a curve and widening the roadway. The project is located in Lassen County, on State Route 139 approximately 7 miles northeast of Susanvile. The project limits are at the summit of Antelope Hill where the narrow, two-lane highway has a horizontal and vertical curve. The improvements planned for this section of road will reshape the curve at the summit by decreasing the severity of the curve, the steepness the grade, widening the travel lane and adding paved shoulders. This will improve the current conditions of the highway and increase visibility through the curve.
