Caltrans to begin Antelope Drapery Project in Lassen County

Caltrans begins work on Highway 139 next week.

Caltrans will begin the Antelope Drapery Rock Fence project July 11, which will install a cable mesh drapery system approximately five miles north of the intersection of Highway 36 and Highway 139 located near Susanville in Lassen County. The project also includes scaling loose rock from slopes before placing the drapery system.

Motorists can expect 30-minute daytime delays as rock scaling begins in July, for approximately three weeks. After scaling work concludes, motorists can expect delays of 5 minutes during daytime hours through the lane closure. Lane width will be significantly reduced during construction of this project, and cyclists should use caution while riding along this route.

The $1.5 million project includes 60 working days, with all requiring traffic control. The entire project is expected to be completed by October 2022.
