Reds Meadow Road
The project consists of preliminary planning and environmental studies to evaluate potential alternatives and associated impacts for improving Reds Meadow Road.
The purpose of the overall project is to improve the deteriorated condition of Reds Meadow Road and improve mobility, so as to continue to provide access to recreational resources. These improvements would facilitate emergency responses in the valley and the U.S. Forest Service goal of enhancing traffic safety by reducing the likelihood of a vehicular crash.
The need to improve the deteriorated condition and mobility on Reds Meadow Road is driven by the presence of the following roadway conditions and design deficiencies that affect its operational condition:
- Insufficient roadway widths
- Structurally deficient pavement conditions
- Sub-grade settlement and fill slope movement
- Poor surface drainage and non-functioning ditches
- Substandard sight distances, narrow shoulders, and road side hazards
