Document Description
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), using State funding only, is proposing to construct a ±27-acre disposal site on the north side of State Route (SR) 299, Trinity County, at post mile (PM) 46.2. The purpose of the project is to maintain public safety, minimize highway closure times, provide an operational highway, and provide opportunities for excess earthen material generated by emergency slides and maintenance activities. The SR 299 corridor in Trinity County is prone to slides and has limited locations to dispose of earthen material. The project is needed to provide capacity for disposal of future slide materials and maintenance activities.
