Notice of Intent to provide updates on the Navarro Ridge Safety Project, Navarro Ridge Drainage Project, and the Albion River Bridge Rehabilitation/Replacement Project and Salmon Creek Bridge Replacement 

What Is Being Planned 

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will provide status updates on the following projects in the vicinity of Albion, CA. 

Navarro Ridge Safety 

This project proposes to improve the safety of State Route (SR) 1 from 1.5 miles north of the junction of SR 128 and SR 1 to 0.1 mile south of Navarro Ridge Road, in Mendocino County, near Albion. The project was initiated by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) District 1 Traffic Safety Office in response to a high incidence of run-off-road collisions. 

Navarro Ridge Drainage 

This project proposes to improve the drainage system south of Navarro Ridge Road at postmile (PM) 42.33, in Mendocino County near Albion at Navarro Ridge Road. The project sponsor, California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) District 1 Maintenance Hydraulics, initiated this project in December 2014 to protect the integrity of the highway embankment. 

Albion River Bridge Rehabilitation/Replacement Project and Salmon Creek Bridge Replacement 

These projects propose to improve the function, the geometrics and the seismic and structural integrity for both structures to ensure uninterrupted traffic movement in the event of a collision or emergency incident, seismic event, or other catastrophic failure; and to provide safe access for pedestrians and bicyclists across the bridge. 

A public meeting is scheduled for September 19, 2019 at the Albion Elementary School, 30400 Albion Ridge Road, Albion, California from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
