Caltrans Begins Critical Repairs on Highway 36, Major Route in Trinity County
Press release from Caltrans District 2:
Caltrans announced today that a paving project on State Route 36 in Trinity County is underway as of Monday, June 5th. The $2.15 million project is funded by Senate Bill (SB) 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017.
“This project is providing needed pavement rehabilitation on State Route 36 near Forest Glen,” said Dave Moore, Caltrans District 2 Director. “Full funding from Senate Bill 1 allows these repairs to be made quickly along the route, which is one of two primary connector routes in District 2 between the valley and the coast.”
Crews are repaving SR 36 from 1.1 miles west of the South Fork Trinity River Bridge to the South Fork Trinity River Bridge #05-0026 AND from the Upper Rattlesnake Creek Bridge #05-0073 to approximately 0.3 mile west of Trinity Pines Road. Motorists should plan for one-way traffic control with up to 15-minute delays, Monday – Friday during daytime hours. Striping and guardrail work will also be included on the project.
Motorists are reminded that the law requires them to slow down, obey temporary speed limit reductions, and drive carefully in and around construction areas. The project is anticipated to be completed by the end of July. Tullis, Inc. is the lead contractor on the project.

SB 1 provides $5 billion in transportation funding annually shared equally between the state and local agencies. Road projects progress through construction phases more quickly thanks to the availability of SB 1 funds, including projects that are partially funded by SB 1.
