Emergency roadway repairs on Highway 36 near Fredonyer Summit begin Monday

The California Department of Transportation and Darren Taylor Construction, Inc. are preparing to begin work on emergency roadway repairs on Highway 36 in Lassen County.  The $375k project will repair pavement deformations caused by recent earthquake activity on Highway 36 approximately 9 miles east of Westwood near Fredonyer Summit. The removal and placement of thermoplastic pavement markings and shoulder work will also be included in the project.

Construction activities are currently planned to start on Monday, Aug. 14.  Motorists will encounter one-way traffic control with up to 10-minute delays, Monday through Friday during daytime hours.  Motorists are urged to slow down and drive carefully in and around construction areas, follow speed limit reductions in place, and allot extra time for delays.  This is a short-term project which is currently anticipated to take about a week.

Construction projects are subject to changes without prior notice.  Caltrans and its contractors do our best to keep the public informed.  To stay up to date on highway projects, follow us on Facebook and Twitter.  Project information can also be found on the District 2 webpage.  The public can also call (530) 225-3426 during working hours or send an email to D2PIO@dot.ca.gov.  Updated highway conditions for California can be found on QuickMap and on One-Stop-Shop for the Western U.S.
