Document Description
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) proposes a safety project to reduce the frequency and severity of collisions on State Route 36 in Humboldt County, from Post Miles 3.90 to 6.00, west of Carlotta, CA. This project would widen the shoulders in several narrow areas, extend the westbound passing and climbing lane, build new guardrail, build a bridge with wide shoulders over Ward Creek, and construct an eastbound maintenance turnout. The new bridge over Ward Creek would also improve fish passage.
