FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Butte County – Caltrans is hosting a community open house this month seeking public feedback about a proposed $25 million roadway improvement project on State Highway 99 in Gridley.
The open house is scheduled from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 19 in the City Council Chambers at Gridley City Hall, 685 Kentucky Street, Gridley.
At the event, community members will learn about project alternatives, view displays and maps and receive information on how they can submit comments about the draft environmental document. The Highway 99 project is proposing improvements between W. Liberty Road and the Stapleton-Pence Packing Co.
In addition to rehabilitating pavement, the project calls for upgrading sidewalks on the east side of the highway and curb ramps to meet current Americans with Disabilities Act standards. It also would upgrade drainage facilities, install fiber optic conduits, add new transportation management system elements such as bike loop detectors, and install a closed-circuit television highway camera.
District 3 is responsible for maintaining and operating 4,385 lane miles in 11 Sacramento Valley and Northern Sierra counties.
