Statement Regarding Project Injunction

In regard to the United States District Court, Northern District of California May 2 injunction that has stopped work on the 197/199 Safe STAA Access Project, which will widen locations on State Routes 197 and 199 and replace an aging bridge to improve safety and provide access to industry standard sized trucks, Caltrans has the following statement:

“This project is designed to allow access for industry standard-sized trucks on State Routes 197 and 199 while minimizing environmental impacts. The injunction is delaying needed safety enhancements and, unfortunately, will significantly increase costs to the public. Caltrans continues to be committed to providing sustainable transportation solutions while preserving California’s environmental resources.”
