SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - Caltrans is working with Steelhead Constructors, Inc. to replace the Hat Creek Bridge in Shasta County, starting in June.

The bridge is located on Highway 44 in Shasta County, near Old Station. 

The $6.2-million project, which is funded in part by Senate Bill 1, will maintain connectivity and mobility along Highway 44. Some aspects of the project include shoulder widening for pedestrians and cyclists, road approach paving, and tree and vegetation removal for site distance and clear recovery. 

A cross culvert will be built under Sugarloaf Drive to relieve localized flooding during storms. 

Starting in early June, there will be one-way traffic control with up to 15-minute delays. Once the temporary bridge is constructed, 24/7 one-way traffic control will be in effect for the remainder of the project. 

The project is anticipated to be completed in December of 2019.
