Reef City Capital Maintenance Project


Project Description

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) proposes to resurface, restore, and rehabilitate the roadway on State Route 41 near Reef City in Kings County, from the Kern County line to 0.8 mile west of the Interstate 5/State Route 41 separation. Other work includes upgrading guardrails to the Mid-West system, replacing existing dikes, installing centerline and shoulder rumble strips, and installing or replacing various Intelligent Transportation Systems elements. Bicycle-friendly grates would be provided in the areas of bike paths. Culverts at 13 locations would be replaced or rehabilitated.

Project Benefits


The purpose of the project is to preserve and rehabilitate the existing pavement, extend the life of the roadway, and minimize future maintenance costs.


The condition of the pavement within the project limits has deteriorated due to the high volume of truck traffic. This has resulted in increased costs to maintain the existing pavement. Restoring the roadway to a state of good repair would minimize maintenance costs and result in smoother pavement surfaces that could lead to improved vehicle operations, reduced emissions, and reduced energy consumption.
