101 Mad River Bridge (between Arcata and McK)

Caltrans estimates that, weather permitting, the McKinleyville ramps for the new Mad River bridge should be open in three weeks.

    How many years has that project been going?

    Cal Trans has been busy incorrectly measuring trees at Richardson Grove.

    Last night I heard a group of six bums talking about how they can move in to the bridge over Mad River, apparently there is a hollow area beneath the road and runs the length of the bridge.

    Will CalTrans repave the lanes on the bridge? They’re lumpy with gouges in them where they ground out the temporary striping they used, and one northbound lane strikes me as dangerous in rainy weather due to the ridge running up it that could be jarring if changing lanes on a slick road.

    unless some assclown libtards file an injunction to halt ramp paving. You never what bug will crawl up their ass.

    The project is actually ahead of schedule. Construction was required to be stopped each winter/

    Don’t you just love all the comments from the experts, can’t wait to find fault with something. It would be best to wait until the project is finished to fault it.

    It strikes me as a huge ongoing task to keep a road like 101 open and functioning smoothly. Caltrans seems to do a good job at that, given that I can generally get where I want to go by driving there, even if it’s the SF bay area.

    Yes, Caltrans gets oodles of money, and yes, it would be nice if they leaned more in the direction of supporting non-private-car transportation. But the road remains open and in good shape, and things could be a lot worse.

    And with the new bridge’s pedestrian and bicyclist pathway, bicyclists will finally be able to cross the Mad River on 101 North without resorting to the use of a “push and pray” button, which always struck me as a violation of the separation of church and state. It’s almost as if bicyclists’ lives mattered as much as drivers’ lives.

    The workers who paved the road were stoned, that’s why it’s so fckd up.

    The reason the project took so long was to protect migrating salmonids. Crews were unable to work when the fish were present. Poor Caltrans can’t win.
