CalTrans Straightening Out the Curves to Make Highway 139 Safer

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2018

CalTrans flagger Tina Jacobs controls traffic at one end of the Antelope Grade construction project

A section of of Highway 139 north of Susanville, which has been prone to accidents for years, is getting a makeover by California Department of Transportation this summer.

The project is re-drawing curves near Antelope Summit – a winding dangerous stretch of road on a highway that serves as a major artery between Susanville and points north including Willow Creek, Eagle Lake, Adin and Bieber.

    I like this idea. But it shouldnt be to make it safer. What makes it dangerous in the first place is idiot drivers who think they know what they doing and go and pass and thats when the accident happens. Or they are distracted by their phones and go into the other lane.

    But how are they doing it? By stealing land from people, or just trying to make the road look straighter but isn’t really?
