Construction Snarling Traffic South of Angels Camp & Parrotts Ferry May Be Best Route!

Posted by: thepinetree on 08/17/2017 11:36 AM
Angels Camp, CA...(Editor's Note: We just heard from a viewer that this stretch of construction is causing up to 45 minute delays if you happen to mistime heading through this area. So is you have an appointment or time sensitive trip you need to make to or from Sonora Parrotts Ferry may be your best alternative. Or Red Hill Road if you don't mind a bit of gravel.) The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will perform one-way traffic control on northbound and southbound State Route 49 from Angels Creek to the Calaveras/Tuolumne county line. Work will begin Monday, August 14, 2017, through Friday, August 18, 2017, from 7:00 p.m. until 6:00 a.m. Motorists should expect 10 minute delays. Alternate routes should be taken whenever possible.

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/13/2017 02:32 PM

The diligent work of Caltrans crews enabled the opening of the pass for motorists who utilize this route.

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

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/01/2017 12:33 PM
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?"

Caltrans Crews Pushing East To Clear Snow Covered Sierra Passes

Posted by: thepinetree on 05/10/2017 08:53 AM
Arnold, CA...Caltrans District 10 gave the following update yesterday on their progress. "The gate at the Mt. Reba turnoff remains closed, and that is as far as folks can go by vehicle. After removing snow on SR-4 near Lake Alpine, a Caltrans' maintenance crew saw that a washout had occurred, the result of a culvert being plugged this past winter. The culvert was cleared, the structural repairs have been made and the road is scheduled to be patched this week. Once repairs are complete, the goal is to continue moving east and open SR-4 to the east end of Lake Alpine by the end of this week. Of course, weather, resources, road conditions and other factors always play a role in the progress of clearing mountain passes.
