Chester, Greenville to benefit from Clean California initiative

As part of Governor Gavin Newsom’s $1.1 billion Clean California initiative, Caltrans is awarding $312 million for 126 beautification projects along the state highway system – with six projects in District 2 — including Chester and Greenville.

Designed to foster cultural connections and civic pride, the projects are expected to generate 3,600 jobs as part of the multiyear initiative led by Caltrans to remove trash and beautify community gateways and public areas along highways, streets, and roads while creating thousands of jobs for Californians. 98 percent of the projects will benefit historically underserved or excluded communities.

“Caltrans partnered with communities throughout California to identify and develop projects that meet the specific needs of each individual region while also enhancing and beautifying public spaces,” said Caltrans Director Toks Omishakin. “By working together, we are better able to restore public pride in our communities and help change the habits that create litter in the first place.”

Developed in close collaboration with tribal and local governments, non-profits and businesses, the 126 state beautification projects include art installations, green space, and proposals that improve safety and promote community connections. Construction begins in April 2022. A full list of projects can be found here.

Projects located in District 2 include:

·        Modoc County: Two gateway monuments and Alturas Pit River Bridge enhancements

·        Trinity County gateway monuments

·        Chester gateway monuments

·        Greenville landscaping

·        Safety fencing in Shasta and Tehama County

·        Susanville gateway monument

·        Yreka landscaping and beautification
