30-minute delays are underway again at the August Complex Emergency Slide Work location on State Route 36 in Trinity County.
Motorists can expect 30-minute delays through Friday, August 27 between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Minimal delays via reversible traffic control (5-10 minutes) can be expected overnight and on weekends. 24/7 traffic control remains in effect at this project location due to one lane being available in the slide area.
Beginning Monday, August 30, motorists should plan for up to 60-minute delays at this location, Monday-Friday between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., with 5-10 minute delays overnight and on weekends.
Caltrans District 2 and the contractor continue to monitor existing emergency situations in the area per increased wildfire activity and traffic volumes, along with any new emergencies that may arise.
This new schedule and longer delay times will allow the contractor to maximize the amount of material removed from the slide area between traffic openings. This effort will help expedite the project with anticipated completion prior to the arrival of inclement weather conditions. The slide repair work is anticipated to be completed by the end of November.
Caltrans District 2 and J.F. Shea Co, Inc. thank the local communities and traveling public for their continued patience as vital repairs continue to be made along State Route 36 in the area.
