The following press release was issued by Caltrans 

Caltrans is partnering with the Calaveras Council of Governments and Calaveras County on the Murphys State Route 4 (SR-4) Complete Streets Project.

What: The second in a series of community workshops

When: Wednesday, June 27, 2018, from 5pm-7pm

Where: Old School House, 65 Jones Street, Murphys, CA 95247.

The project will evaluate the SR-4 corridor through Murphys and work with the community to identify improvements that will provide safe connectivity by all modes, including walking and biking, throughout the community and to key destinations.

Based on community input and dialog, the Complete Streets Plan will plot future transportation strategies to improve safety, access, aesthetics, and mobility. The final product will be a conceptual plan aimed at maximizing existing and planned investments along the SR-4 corridor while providing safe routes to school. This plan will also facilitate future grants to construct the identified improvements.

This workshop is to review alternatives with the community to help determine the preferred alternative for the project.
