Caltrans Open House


Virtual Open House Scheduled for Highway 26/49 Intersection Control Improvement Project in Calaveras County

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will hold a public information meeting in the form of a Virtual Open House regarding an intersection control improvement project in Calaveras County.

The Virtual Open House will be held online from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 28, 2021.

Caltrans proposes to improve safety at the State Route 26 and Route 49 intersection in the town of Mokelumne Hill.

The California Highway Patrol conducted a Traffic Collision Report and identified a pattern of broadside collisions at this intersection. A Traffic Signal Warrant Analysis was performed, and the results found an upgrade to the intersection control is warranted.

The purpose of the meeting is to update the community on the project’s progress, discuss project alternatives and the status of environmental studies, and field comments and questions.

Three alternatives are being proposed:

  • Construct a roundabout.
  • Install a traffic signal.
  • Leave the intersection as-is (no-build option).

Phone lines will be available for anyone without internet access: (209) 986-3821 (English), or (209) 986-1262 (Spanish).

Anyone who can’t attend the meeting can submit comments in writing to Jaycee Azevedo, Branch Chief, Central Region, Environmental, 1976 E. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, Stockton, CA 95205, or email

After considering all comments received, Caltrans will continue with the project’s environmental process and design.
