Phase 2 Winter Storm Recovery Debris Removal on Rail Road Flat Road & Major Project Locations

San Andreas, CA...During January 2019 an atmospheric river system swept across California bringing high winds, substantial precipitation, and flooding, impacting counties across the state.  Continuing on February 12-19 another significant atmospheric river system swept across Calaveras County resulting in widespread damage to the County road system.  Calaveras was one of several counties in California identified as being impacted by this disaster and will be receiving both State and Federal disaster recovery funds.

The Calaveras County Department of Public Works is working with the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) and California Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) to remove debris and to permanently repair several roads that were impacted by the 2019 winter storms.

On May 26, 2020 the Calaveras County Board of Supervisors approved agreements with Sierra Mountain Construction to remove approximately 1195 CYs of debris from Rail Road Flat Road and approximately 413 CYs of debris from other locations (Winton Road, Calaveritas Road, Pool Station Road, Whiskey Slide Road and Worden Road).  Debris removal is scheduled to begin at Rail Road Flat Road and Winton Road from June 22nd – June 24th and the remaining sites from June 25th – July 1st.

The table below demonstrates the remaining two debris removal projects.

Debris Removal Project Estimated Debris Quantities Roads -- Locations of Debris
Rail Road Flat Road 1195 CY Rail Road Flat Road
Major Projects 413 CY Winton Rd., Calaveritas Rd., Pool Station Rd., Whiskey Slide Rd., Worden Rd.

Permanent repairs on Independence Road, Calaveritas Road and Pool Station Road will take place during the 2020 summer construction season.

More information can be obtained on these and other disaster recovery efforts by visiting the Calaveras County Disaster Recovery Website.

Well I hope all goes smoothly and I know a lesson will be learned that sometimes, someone, has to get out of the truck and pick up the debris that have accumulated. Kinda thought after the road washed out at the road dept's yard at White Pines that a lesson was learned, but seems not
(I know, I'm sarcastic 💩) just a little constructive criticism 😃
