  • Looking forward to the new improved 36 ! Hopefully others will respect the road and slow down. Please drive through the construction zone and pay attention. Local workers and Mercer frasier improving our long overdue roadway.

  • East side of West 36 near Red Bluff is also getting some work. Lots of power poles getting moved to take out a few big curves.

  • Honeydew Bridge C.H.U.M.P.

    It’s a military road and will be able to handle mobile icbm after this, getting the rods out of King Salmon can happen, and mobile launchers can have the go of 36.

    Most hippy types are PRO NUCLEAR WAR, so it’s good for the community.

    Those chevrons painted have meaning, study the footage and you’ll figure it out.

    • Um, no on the ICBM. Truth is that any access to a drinking water resevoir in the US must be able to get heavy military vehicles there to defend in time if war. So, Ruth lake and dam is drinking water, so Federal Highway funds pay to get the road to specs thst can handle larger vehivles. Shasta dam went thru the same thing years ago.
