MARIPOSA COUNTY – Caltrans has announced the completion of a project that created more than 35 miles of center and shoulder rumble strips on Highway 49 in Mariposa and Tuolumne counties.
Rumble strips are used to increase the safety of the roadway and reduce the likelihood of offroad collisions, head-on collisions and other incidents, according to Caltrans. Rumble strips alert motorists that they are accidentally leaving their lane or the roadway.
Work was performed at the following locations:
• From the Mariposa/Madera County line to SR-140 in Mariposa County
• From West Whitlock Road to Princeton Way in Mariposa County
• From the SR-49/SR-120 junction at Moccasin to Harvard Mine Road, one mile south of Jamestown in Tuolumne County
• From Jack Page Road, just south of Sonora, to the Tuolumne/Calaveras County line
This $854,000 project was performed by Dreambuilder Construction Corporation of Placentia.
