MARIPOSA COUNTY – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will conduct a slope repair project on State Route 140 near the community of Briceburg in Mariposa County.
The project is needed to restore the integrity of the slope beneath an existing 84-inch concrete pipe culvert.
Crews will remove existing headwall, wingwall, and outfall apron that overhang the eroded side slope at the end of an 84-inch pipe culvert and install rock slope protection to prevent further erosion of the roadway side slope.
Other work includes upgrading guardrails to current standards.
The project will take place along the eastbound side of Route 140 about two miles west of Bull Creek Road and two miles south of Briceburg.
Construction is expected to begin in July 2022 and is scheduled to end in November 2022.
Intermittent lane closures and one-way traffic control will be employed.
Motorists should expect delays of 10 minutes or longer at times and use alternate routes whenever possible.
