Restoration project begins in Canyon July 11; should be completed in 2024
Caltrans announced today that it will begin the Plumas 70 Permanent Restoration project on Monday, July 11, which will provide for the permanent restoration of roadway slope from 2017 storm damage.
Motorists can expect 7-minute daytime delays as work begins in July, but there could be occasional 35-minute delays. Work on this project will happen during daytime hours, Monday through Saturday, from the Plumas County line to the Greenville Wye.
A combination of grouted Rock Slope Protection (RSP) clusters at seven locations and a soldier pile “Tie-Back Retaining Wall” at one location will be installed. In addition, eight culverts will be replaced along the route as the roadway embankment undergoes stabilization.
The soldier pile wall location near Rich Bar will be reduced to one lane for a half-mile length with a temporary traffic signal.
The $20 million project includes 175 working days. The entire project is expected to be completed in 2024.
