The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) proposes an emergency Director’s Order project to trim and remove hazardous trees at two locations: along State Route (SR) 4, between post miles (PM) 36.0 and 50.0, in Calaveras County; and along SR-140, between PMs 15.0 and 22.0, in Mariposa County.

All work will occur within Caltrans Right of Way. The purpose of this project is to trim and remove trees that are an immediate threat to the roadway.
