ECHO SUMMIT SIDEHILL VIADUCT PROJECT

 
ECHO SUMMIT SIDEHILL VIADUCT Caltrans is conducting traffic safety roadwork to meet current safety standards. Over the lifetime of the bridge, natural wear-and-tear has occurred, necessitating standard repairs. These repairs will help ensure the safety of the bridge and help preserve this beautiful thoroughfare.
