Caltrans Provides Willits Bypass Project Update to Willits City Council

IMG_9276On Wednesday, July 23, Caltrans Project Manager Mauricio Serrano and Senior Resident Engineer Geoffrey Wright provided the Willits City Council with a Willits Bypass Project update.  The update included the following:

The realignment of Haehl Creek and fish passage improvement work has begun and is anticipated to be completed by mid-September.

Due to the US Army Corps of Engineer’s permit suspension, the south interchange will not be completed this year; it will be completed next summer.

IMG_1197Five of the eight frames, or sections, which form the viaduct should be completed by October; concrete pours will begin within a week.

All the reaming viaduct bents, or columns, will be completed by October.

At the north interchange a final utility relocation will be completed soon, and moving in fill will begin as soon as Mendocino Forest Products obtains their grading permit from Mendocino County.
