State Route 70 Lighting Project in Plumas County

State Route 70

Caltrans District 2, in conjunction with Robert J. Frank Construction, Inc., are beginning work on a highway lighting project on State Route 70 in Plumas County. The $230,000 project will install highway lighting at the Beckwourth chain on/off area near Beckwourth Calpine Road. 

Construction activities are anticipated to begin on October 12. Motorists may encounter one-way traffic control with up to 15-minute delays at times, 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. The project is currently anticipated to be completed by early November.
