Caltrans announces Susanville Gateway Monument construction to begin on Monday 

Caltrans District 2 announces construction for the Susanville Gateway Monument project will begin Monday, Aug. 21.

This gateway monument will be installed next to Highway 36 near the entrance of the City of Susanville. The design of the gateway monument has been provided by the City of Susanville. The monument’s design is reflective of the community and will beautify and improve public space in the vicinity of the highway through the addition of a permanent art installation.

Efforts will be made to ensure efficient traffic flow and minimize inconvenience to motorists during installation.

Work is scheduled to begin Monday, Aug. 21 and is expected to be completed by mid-October, weather permitting. Caltrans encourages residents and commuters to stay updated on project developments through our official channels and exercise caution while traveling through the area.

This $185,000 project is funded by the Clean California program. There are several Clean California projects underway all over California, including projects in Lassen, Modoc, Trinity, Plumas, Shasta and Tehama Counties. You can view a map of all of our Clean California projects here.

About the Campaign
Clean California beautification projects are made possible through Governor Gavin Newsom’s Clean California initiative, a sweeping $1.2 billion, multiyear clean-up effort led by Caltrans to remove trash, create thousands of jobs, and engage communities to transform public spaces. Since 2021, the program has removed 1.4 million cubic yards of trash, created 3,500 jobs, and awarded $300 million in local grants.
