Potato Patch Overlay Project on State Route 32

SR 32

Caltrans District 2, in conjunction with Dig It Construction Inc., is preparing to begin work on the Potato Patch Overlay Project on State Route 32 in Tehama County. 

The $1 million project will replace asphalt concrete surfacing via dig outs and place a thin hot asphalt mix overlay approximately 28 miles east of Forest Ranch, from approximately 1 mile east of Deer Creek Bridge to a half-mile west of Slate Creek Bridge. The project will also include shoulder backing and upgrading guardrail to current standards. 

Construction activities are anticipated to begin in Spring of 2022. Motorists will encounter one-way traffic control with up to 15 minute delays, Monday through Friday, during daytime hours. Motorists are urged to slow down and drive carefully in and around construction areas, follow speed limit reductions in place, and allot extra time for delays.
