Hwy 49 LaBarr Meadows Project Almost Complete

Work is almost complete on the $29 million Highway 49/La Barr Meadows Project that will widen State Route 49 to four lanes between Little Valley Road and Norambagua Way, just south of Grass Valley. The project includes a signalized intersection at La Barr Meadows Road, widening of shoulders, adding right- turn pockets and new sound walls. Caltrans Spokesperson Rochelle Jenkins says  they should be all done  by the end of this month.
