Ideas Wanted For Gateway Signs In Calaveras County

Sponsored by:

Calaveras County, CA –Community input is needed to help design community gateway signs along the four state highways in Calaveras County.

Caltrans is partnering with the Calaveras County Department of Public Works (DPW) to build gateway monuments and wayfinding signs at key locations in the county. In all, 22 signs will go up in seven communities along Highways 12, 26, 49, and 4. Those communities include Angels Camp, Arnold, Copperopolis, Mokelumne Hill, Murphys, San Andreas, and Valley Springs.

To garner feedback, public works officials will be hosting open houses in each of those communities where the signs are being constructed. The public can come by anytime between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. to give their ideas and opinions on the design of the proposed signs in their community.
