Caltrans received a letter from the US Army Corps of Engineers outlining modifications to our permit to build the Willits Bypass Project. The letter maintains the conditional suspension of our permit, clarifies work that may and may not be performed without further authorization, and outlines three things Caltrans must complete before the suspension will be lifted. Caltrans will be meeting with the Corps July 9 to discuss this latest letter.
Due to the July 9 meeting, Caltrans will not suspend work before the meeting in hopes that the suspension can still be lifted. However, if there is no further clarity from the Corps the suspension will be implemented as outlined yesterday.
