Document Description
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), using State funds only, is proposing to restore State Route 395 in Modoc County from PM 34.0 to 39.9 to a condition that requires minimal maintenance and extends the life of the pavement. This Highway Maintenance (HM) project would apply a 0.10’ Hot-Mixed Asphalt (HMA) overlay with isolated digouts over approximately 5 miles on State Route 395 in Modoc County (PM 34.0/39.9). Pavement mill and fill will occur at begin and end conforms. Guardrail will be reconstructed except at bridge approaches and shoulders will be backed to standard. All work will be done within existing hinge points. There are no bridges or dike within the project limits. There will be no increase in disturbed soil aera (DSA) or impervious surface. Removal of thermoplastic pavement markings will be required. This project will be constructed in 2024 and will take approximately 25 working days.
