Caltrans grants county $25,000


Caltrans has announced that Mariposa County will receive $25,000 to help reconstruct Mt. Bullion Cutoff. 

The grant will be used for phase two of the effort to reconstruct the road surface and improve the road Highway 140 to just past Highway 49 North. The project is scheduled for next summer.

“We are putting transportation dollars to work supporting jobs and making improvements that will benefit Californians now and for decades to come,” said Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty.

How about fixing Hwy. 140 at

How about fixing Hwy. 140 at the rockslide in the Merced Canyon?!? It's only been 6 1/2 years of a one-lane bridge and stupidly-long delay stoplight on THE major all-year road into Yosemite. Sheesh CalTrans and Mariposa County- get a clue!
