The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), using state funds, proposes to install safety fencing at various locations in Shasta and Tehama Counties. The fencing will discourage littering, trespassing, and graffiti, while protecting the State's infrastructure. The purpose of the project is to improve public space and safety adjacent to the highway through the installation of fencing. The project is needed because Caltrans maintenance personnel have repeatedly observed and cleaned litter and graffiti at several highway bridges throughout the district. Vandalistic activities can endanger the public, and cleaning or repairing the resulting damage can be hazardous to Caltrans employees.
