Some Northstate roads will get smoother sooner than expected. Funding has been expedited to begin certain projects around the state with money from a state senate transportation bill passed in April. Statewide the “Fix-it-First” Projects include 66 bridges, 1200 lane miles of pavement and 300 culverts. Here in District 2 several of the jobs are on Interstate Five. A $26.4 Million pavement preservation project through the City of Anderson will improve 6.5 miles of asphalt, update signage and lighting and add other elements. A similar project in Siskiyou County will cover 25.5 miles of I-5 Dunsmuir to the Black Butte Overhead at a cost of $136 Million. Another $39 Million will revamp and improve clearance for trucks on I-5 at four overpasses in the Yreka area, as well as the Highway 273 overcrossing in North Redding. Another $10 Million Dollars will be spent on improvements to four bridges in Trinity County.
