Culvert improvement project begins Monday on 147 near Almanor

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans District 2), in conjunction with Lamb Unlimited General Engineering, is preparing to begin work on a culvert improvement project on State Route 147 in Plumas County. The $300k project will replace culverts and make drainage improvements at various locations from approximately 3 ½ miles north of the junction with State Route 89 to approximately 1 ½ miles north of the junction with County Road A13.
Construction activities are anticipated to begin on Oct. 25. Motorists should anticipate one-way traffic control at various locations with up to 10-minute delays, Mondays – Fridays during daytime hours. Motorists are urged to slow down and drive carefully in and around construction areas, follow speed limit reductions in place, and allot extra time for delays. The project is currently anticipated to be completed by the end of November.
Construction projects are subject to changes without prior notice.  Caltrans and its contractors do our best to keep the public informed.  To stay up to date on highway projects, please follow us on Facebook and Twitter.  Project information can also be found on the District 2 webpage. The public can also call (530) 225-3426 during working hours or send an email to [email protected]. Updated highway conditions for California can be found on QuickMap and on One-Stop-Shop for the Western U.S.
