Caltrans is reaching out to the public for valuable input on the design of a new welcome sign or monument to be installed at the Oregon border along U.S. Route 199 in Del Norte County.

The outdated welcome sign at the Oregon border is set to be replaced with a new monument, and Caltrans wants the community's feedback on its design.

As a component of Governor Gavin Newsom’s Clean California initiative, this project aligns with the broader mission of creating a welcoming atmosphere and enhancing public spaces throughout the Golden State.

To actively participate in shaping the visual identity of the new monument, community members are encouraged to complete a brief survey. Responses are requested through Sunday, January 28. Take the survey.

Caltrans values the public's insights and believes this collaborative effort will result in a monument that resonates with the community.

The installation of the new welcome monument is anticipated within the next year.
