The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is proposed a project to repair
existing distressed pavement, upgrade existing guardrail and upgrade existing
Transportation Management System (TMS) assets between post miles 33.7 and R51.0 along State Route 1 in Mendocino County. The purpose of this project is to preserve roadway pavement that has minor structural distress as determined by the Pavement Condition Survey and to improve safety for motorists. The project is needed to repair existing pavement cracking and surface rutting that cannot be adequately maintained by Highway Maintenance programs and to upgrade existing guardrails within the project area to meet current Caltrans guardrail system standards. This Capital Preventative Maintenance improvement project would include the following activities: rehabilitation of Class II pavement by cold-plane asphalt-concrete dig outs, profile grinding; placement of 0.15 of RHMA-G + 0.10 HMA-A (Leveling Course), placement of shoulder backing, upgrade of existing Metal Beam Guard Rail to Midwest Guardrail System (MGS), upgrade of WB transitions to WB-31 sections, installing nine new inline terminal sections, upgrading existing TMS facilities, replacing sign panels, and replacement of centerline rumble strips from PM 40.33 to 43.41.
