Inquiring Minds Want To Know: How Does Caltrans Find The Road?

Kennedy Meadows, CA...From Caltrans.."A lot of people wonder how we find the road through all the snow. On SR-108, the Sonora Pass, Caltrans Supervisor Chris Baker informs me that his crew locates the road by electrifying a line that is embedded in the center of the highway. He then uses a locator to detect it and as you see in the photo, puts environmentally friendly marks for the dozer to follow. The dozer then pushes snow down to the blower. And then the blower operators can follow center line from there and widen out the highway. Simple, huh?"

This is amazing - we tend to take this challenging work for granted, but it truly should not be. Thank you CalTrans for all your effort.

    No kidding! Still seems pretty dangerous if there has been a washout or other hidden problem.

    Thanks, CalTrans

      If there were a washout, or some other type of obstruction, the little red thing will pop out, like on a turkey.

There's an electrical line in the center of the road? Must be segmented? How long are the segments? They put some RF energy into it and have a sniffer for it?

Or is this purely a metal detector - but must be capable of detecting metal from over 12 feet away?

    Yes, we turn the RF to the Giants station 680, since the Giants are so close to the bottom of the division the signal picks up in the bottom RF signal better. So actually up here? WE'RE GIANTS

I am so glad you shared this news. It's amazing what the crews are doing.
Now we know how they are doing it!
Be careful out there.
