The California Department of Transportation District 2, in collaboration with the city of Susanville and the Lassen County Transportation Commission will be updating the striping on several crosswalks on Highway 36/Main Street in Susanville to enhance pedestrian safety.
Construction crews will be working in late spring or early summer on a total of six crosswalks along Highway 36/Main Street at Hall Street, McDow Street, Sacramento Street and Mesa Street. An additional crosswalk is being considered at Rob Way or Laurel Street. An existing crosswalk at Sacramento street will also be removed.
In addition, Caltrans will continue working with the city, Lassen County Transportation Commission and the public, to evaluate additional options focused on pedestrian safety within the Highway 36/Main Street. Caltrans looks forward to continuing partnering with local agencies on projects that increase pedestrian safety for Susanville residents, visitors and the public in general.
In regard to the above mentioned plans and the current COVID-19 emergency, note: The state’s transportation system is a high priority for California. As the Caltrans 2020 Construction Season has begun, North Region Construction and District 2 are aiming to follow construction operations as scheduled while monitoring developments related to the COVID-19 emergency. The public will be informed of any changes.
