Document Description
Caltrans proposes to resize or replace, and/or extend to the Clear Recovery Zone (CRZ) limits, 23 culverts on SR 36 east of the Community of Westwood in Lassend County. The purpose of this project is to improve an aging culvert system by increasing capacity (some existing culverts are not in the line with current standards), increase maintenance efficiency, protect the existing roadway and enhancing motorist safety by providing clear recovery areas. The elevation is 5,100 ft and experiences heavy winter precipitation including snow and ice. Fill slopes will extend between 5ft and 30 ft on either side to the inlets and outlets providing unimproved pullouts for motorist safety. Cinders and forest debris will be removed at 3 of the culverts to allow for adequate compaction of fill and to improve drainage away from the culverts.
