Document Description
Plumas County, in combination with the Federal Highway Administration and U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service (Plumas National Forest), is proposing to improve and realign the southern 9.6 miles of Forest Highway (FH) 177 (Beckwourth-Genesee Road) from SR 70 in Beckwourth to County Road 111 in Clover Valley. The existing roadway is a combination of paved and unpaved surfaces. The project would widen, realign, and resurface the road to improve the operational and design deficiencies of the roadway to be consistent with current design standards. The main realignment would shift the road outside the Ceresola Ranch.
