Pro~ Department of Transportation ponders traffic delay problem when bridge rehab begins on Highway 70 By Victoria Metcalf "As you will see in the TMP, Co0t~ said, "These are not to be stabilized to meet state give input, information must Riverside Drive, Staff Writer Public comments and sug- gestions are being sought from the Department of Transporta- tion as five bridges in the Feather River Canyon are tar- geted for repairs. No bridges will be replaced, said Katherine Coots, mainte- nance superintendent for the Plumas County division of Cal- trans, but traffic is of prime consideration, she said. A fi- nal draft of the Transportation Management Plan (TMP) for the project rehabilitation of five bridges on Highway 70 is now available for public re- view. It has also been shared with key officials, including the U.S. Forest Service, Cali- fornia Department of Forestry (CDF), Quincy Chamber of Commerce. Plumas County Board of Supervisors and many others. The TMP discusses the work and related traffic impacts at each bridge, as well as pro- posed mitigative measures to minimize or eliminate these impacts, according to Steve Rogers, chief of the Office of Transportation Management, in the Redding division of the Department of Transporta- tion. even with the best mitigative measures in place, significant traffic impacts for some bridge work is still expected, includ- ing complete nighttime clo- sures of the highway and re- duced traffic lane widths," Rogers said. To help solve the traffic de- lays anticipated as bridge re- habilitation begins, the De- partment of Transportation is seeking additional ideas. "It's difficult not to affect traffic and still be safe," Coots explained about the project. While decisions on how to handle traffic flow are being considered, Coots said that one suggestion is to have crews work at night. This is not a popular suggestion with con- tractors, but it works in keep- ing the roads open to day-time travel. Emergency services will also be included in the plan to make sure the highway is open. During 1999 and 2000, major wildland fires hit the Feather River Canyon. CDF, Forest Service, Caltrans and PG&E vehicles needed to have access to the highway, she said. In considering the scope of the rehabilitation project, of the Plumas County Museum Odd and Unusual Artifacts Here is this week's look at one of the treasures not nor- mally on display at the Piumas County Museum. Our featured artifact is a copper box. Its dimensions are 6" x 11" x 20". What is It? The answer will be in next week's paper. If you think you know what it is, call the museum at 283-6320. Unfortunately, last week's mys- tery item was not correctly identified. It was guessed by Jim Atcher, of Taylorsville, to be a money clip with a chain to attach to a person's pocket. That was a logi- cal guess, but the item is actually larger than it ap- pears. It is actually a chain with fasteners to hold a carriage blanket over the laps of auto and wagon pas- sengers. These clips were used by the Robinson family of Toil Gate above Meadow Valley. They were donated by Donna McEIroy of Meadow Valley in 11989. From the week previous, the unique scissors were not guessed to match museum records, it is possible that the imple- ments, reported to clip candle wicks, are actually spe- cial scissors to cut the tips fTom Soft boiled eggs! Both Ursula Kleinhans, of Portola, and Emily Williams, of Twain, called to describe their familiarity with the egg shell cutter. Mysteries continue! i The Lassen County Arts Council welcomes back to the Susanville stage "The Collec- tive" (formerly called Reno Jazz Collective), one of the most creative and distinctive groups jazz ensembles in the northwestern United States. A single performance is scheduled at 7:30 p.m., Satur- day, Jan. 27, at the Sierra The- atre, 819 Main St., Susanville. Sponsored by the Lassen County Arts Council, general admission is $12, LCAC mem- bers $10, and students $6. Tickets are currently avail- able at the Lassen County Arts Council office, 807 Cottage St., the Daily Grind and Sierra Theatre, Main Street, Su- sanville. For additional infor- mation, contact LCAC, 257- 5222. This concert follows the re- lease of the group's most re- cent CD, North, and features the group's latest line-up, trumpeter Larry Engstrom, saxophonist Francis Vanek, pianist David Ak'e, bassist Hans Halt, and drummer Ger- ry Genuario. "North" displays all of the fire, versatility, and inventiveness that audiences throughout the West have come to expect of this unit. The Collective draws on a wealth of performance experi- ence, its members having ap. peared alongside such jazz greats as Charlie Haden, Tom- my Flanagan, J.C. Moses, Joe Pass, Bud Shank, and Cedar Walton. The group's music reflects each musician's deep under- standing of the full range of the jazz tradition, as they feel equally at home among the sounds of the earliest Elling- ton, the most straight-ahead bebop, or the latest post-mod- ernists.
