Rattle Snake Road (WORK) "Improvement"

Tahoe National Forest - News & Events

Release Date: Aug 19, 2016

Contact(s): D-A Brabazon

NEVADA CITY, Calif. – The Tahoe National Forest is currently conducting road maintenance and improvements to Rattlesnake Road beginning August 19, 2016.

Travel delays are to be expected while road crews blast and grade the ten mile section starting near old Highway 40. Travelers might also experience road dust impacting visibility and are encouraged to travel at a speed that is appropriate to road conditions.

“The safety of the public and the U.S. Forest Service employees working on the project are of the utmost concern, “said Yuba River District Ranger Karen Hayden. “Heavy equipment, blasting of bedrock and dust created from the operations pose a safety concern for everyone in the area.” Hayden added that it is recommended to observe a speed limit of 25 miles per hours, or slower, to ensure a safe environment for motorists and road crew workers.

Operations are expected to begin at 7 a.m. and finish daily around 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

No operations are expected to be conducted Friday through Sunday, allowing weekend visitors to travel Rattlesnake Road without the impact of road construction.

Work on the road project is expected to last through the month of September.

Liberalism and the socialist "i'm owed" mentality will be the downfall of our once great country!
