State Route 4 Pavement Anchor Project

Project Description

This project proposes to rehabilitate the existing asphalt concrete (AC) pavement on State Route (SR) 4 in Alpine County from postmile (PM) R0.0 to 31.67. The project limits reside on the United States Forest Service’s (USFS) property. The rehabilitation includes overlay, dig outs, cold planning, upgrading AC dikes and curbs, and constructing shoulder backing. This multi-objective “Anchor” Project also proposes to remove and replace the culverts, metal beam guardrails, and roadside signs. The project also proposes to construct a maintenance vehicle pullout (MVP) on SR 89 at PM 10.8.

Project Benefits


The purpose of this multi-objective project is to improve the pavement condition, culvert drainage systems, visibility of the roadside signs, and roadside safety devices for the safety of maintenance workers on State Routes 4 and 89 within project limits.


There is a need to preserve and extend the service life of the existing pavement within the project limits. The existing pavement has minor cracks on the surfaces, settlement, and crumbled edges. In addition, there is a need to address deteriorating culvert drainage systems, update nonstandard guardrail systems and nonstandard ground mounted road signs, and for the safety of maintenance workers.
