Valley Oaks Intersection Project

Project Description

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) proposes to improve the intersection at State Route 12 (from post miles 9.9 to 10.3) and the entrance/exit of the Valley Oaks Shopping Center in Calaveras County. The project proposes to reduce the number and severity of broadside collisions at this location through intersection control improvements. The project would require additional right-of-way and utility relocation. Project work may include frontage roads, turn lanes, sidewalks, bus stops, bike lanes, and curb ramps.
