Angels Camp, CA…The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will install drainage pipe systems (culverts) on State Route 49 from approximately a half-mile south of Red Hill Road to Gun Club Road near Angels Camp in Calaveras County. Culverts drain water to help prevent erosion and maintain the structural integrity of roadways. Construction is scheduled to begin on Monday, October 3 and continue until November 2022. One-way traffic control with flaggers will be employed from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and from 6:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Friday.

Motorists should expect 5- to 10-minute delays and are advised to use alternate routes, whenever possible.
Culverts will be installed at two locations south of Red Hill Road, one location north of Whittle Ranch Road, and one location south of Gun Club Road.

The estimated $275,00 project will be performed by Quimu Contracting Inc. of Dixon, CA.
