Document Description
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) proposes a safety project on California State Route 49 (SR-49) in Placer County from Post Miles R8.7 to R10.6, between the cities of Auburn and Grass Valley. This project proposes to construct a concrete median barrier on SR 49, between Lorenson Road and Lone Star Road to reduce the number and severity of cross median collisions within this segment. In addition, construction of traffic features at Lorensen Road and Lone Star Road intersections are proposed to accommodate U-turn movements for out-of-direction travel resulting from the construction of the concrete median barrier.
