Caltrans plans to finish stoplight project this month

KELSEYVILLE – The stoplight project at the Kit's Corner intersection could be finished by the end of this month, according to Caltrans officials.


The project, at the intersection of Highways 29 and 281 – known locally as Kit's Corner – went forward thanks to community efforts to convince Caltrans that it was needed.


Phil Frisbie Jr., a spokesman for Caltrans' District 1 – which includes Lake County – said this week that the agency hopes to wrap work on the project by the end of October.


If there are no weather delays in the coming weeks, Frisbie said the contractor, Steiny and Co. of Vallejo, will be able to finish up work.


That, said Frisbie, would allow Caltrans to stay on a tentative schedule of turning on the light on Oct. 24.


The contractor is expected to finish some paving and raising of light standard poles by week's end, said Frisbie.


Caltrans began work on the intersection signalization project in September, said Frisbie.


The signal project has only cost the county about $33,000, as Lake County News previously reported. The entire project originally was expected to costs about $500,000, but Steiny and Co.'s bid came in at just under $400,000.
