Update on Highway 36/A-13 project

Caltrans is progressing construction operations on the A-13 at Highway 36 Safety Project, near Chester from just east of Bailey Creek Bridge to just east of County Road A-13 in Plumas County.

The safety project includes the construction of a traffic circle (roundabout).

Constructing the roundabout includes removing the existing asphalt, performing earthwork cuts, placing asphalt concrete structural sections in the circulatory roadway and approach legs, and adding concrete curbing for the roundabout and approach legs. In addition, the safety project will relocate one utility pole, add striping and new landscaping, add luminaries on the approach legs, and install new signage.

Motorists will encounter two-way traffic with temporary striping and delineation at the Highway 36/A-13 intersection. As of July 2, no traffic control will be in effect until work commences on July 8.

4th of July Holiday
Work on the project is paused until July 8. There will be no traffic control during the holiday weekend. Motorists should adhere to the posted signage and speed limits when navigating the intersection.

The construction project includes 85 working days, and is expected to be completed by the end of September, pending weather and operations.

Knife River Construction, North Region Construction and Caltrans District 2 thank the traveling public and local communities for their patience during the construction of the project. Construction projects are subject to changes without prior notice. Caltrans and its contractors do our best to keep the public informed.
