Caltrans invites resident of the Lake Almanor Basin to an informational open house on the A13 at Route 36 Safety Project. The event will be held Wednesday, July 12 from 4 – 7 p.m. at the Almanor Recreation Center, 101 Meadowbrook Loop, in Chester.
The project includes the construction of a roundabout. Constructing the roundabout includes removing the exiting asphalt, performing earthwork cuts of 8-10 ft, placing asphalt concrete structural sections in the circulatory roadway and approach legs, and adding concrete curbing for the roundabout and approach legs. In addition, the safety project will relocate one utility pole, add luminaries on the approach legs, and install new signage.
It is estimated this project will take 80 working days, with 70 days requiring traffic control. Construction is anticipated to start in fall/winter of 2023.
