Caltrans District 3


When is Highway 49 in Auburn not going to be an utter disaster anymore? When I would ask if it could get any worse, that was supposed to be a rhetorical question...
Here in the Capay Valley the trash on the side of the road is out of control. People driving down the road throwing their garbage out the window. I stopped to take this pictures!! won't let me post it. It is a cow with a plastic bag in its mouth. It affects both domestic and wildlife.

I noticed we have 1 sign only. I would like CalTrans to install several with that highest amount allowable as a fine. What needs to happen next for installation. Also what are the steps to change the penalty. Our State has one of the lowest.
Please advise
When will Carson Rd in Camino, between Sierra Blanca and Barkley Rd, again be open to through traffic?
What Rest Areas are open on I-5 from Sacramento to the Oregon Border?
Please please pleaseeee do something about the mess created between Stockton Blvd and 65th street! There's literally an accident there every single day since you put up those very tight and stressful barriers. Drive safety should be a concern of yours when you start projects and don't work on them...
I would like to voice my displeasure with the mess that is now Highway 50 around Stockton Blvd. Can you PLEASE do something about the east bound on-ramp at Stockton BLVD. This is an abomination and a death trap. I know Sacramentans are poor drivers but this is ridiculous.

I've seen accidents in that section every single day since work started. It appears driver safety wasn't even considered when putting up barricades and manipulating on-ramps and lanes. The fact the signs state this project will take a year is very disheartening and concerning.

I strongly urge you to rethink and redesign the current Stockton Blvd East bound on-ramp. People's lives are at stake.
We were travelling Westbound on Hwy49 from Grass Valley towards Auburn. It was late afternoon and there was a Caltrans truck spraying some kind of liquid on the road right in front of us. It left a pretty good film on our car. I'd just like to know what it was? Thanks.
You guys need to fix the southbound lines around Fruitridge/seamas overpass in the fixsac5 area. They are not visible during the day! People are almost colliding or unintentionally changing lanes! I have nervous moments video of this problem but it wont let me upload it to your page.
Are the Adopt a highway road clean up able to resume?
Please wish Chad a very Happy Birthday! Enjoy the day and thanks for all the good music.
A couple of weeks ago I was driving from Tahoe to Silver Lake on Hwy 88. I was 4th or 5th in a line of cars that was stopped by construction just before Silver Lake.

We started to move, and just as I passed the guy holding the "slow" sign (with a group of guys nearby) one of them yelled "HEY GRANDMA".

Way to ruin my day, Caltrans. If I hadn't just waited in 20 minutes of traffic I would have pulled off the road and given them an earful. As it was, I had a date with a kayak.

You might want to consider some awareness training for your employees. 😡
Where can I go to find any plans or discussions or reports for Highway 49 at the El Dorado-Placer County line? Are there any plans to fix the situation? Thank you.

Campaign Signs Face Restrictions Along State Highways | Caltrans 04/08/2022

Campaign Signs Face Restrictions Along State Highways | Caltrans

Political candidates and campaign workers for either an office or ballot measure are reminded of a state law governing the placement of “Temporary Political Signs” within view of a state highway. If campaign signs are located on private property, but within view of a state highway, candidates must file a Statement of Responsibility form with Caltrans’ Outdoor Advertising Program in Sacramento. State law directs Caltrans to remove unauthorized temporary political signs and bill the responsible party for their removal. See our news release at for more details.
