Paving project upcoming on Highway 139

The California Department of Transportation and All-American Construction, Inc. are preparing to begin work on the Grasshopper CIR Project on Highway 139 in Lassen County. The $3.9 million project will conduct a cold in place recycling on existing pavement and provide a thin hot mix asphalt overlay on Highway 139 approximately 32 miles north of Susanville, from 1.1 mile north of Eagle Lake Road to 5.2 miles south of Termo Grasshopper Road. Additional work includes shoulder backing and striping.

Construction activities are currently planned to start on Monday, Aug. 7. Motorists should plan for up to 15-minute delays, Mondays through Fridays 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. The project is currently anticipated to be completed by the end of September.
