Hi again everyone-

Work has begun on the new Highway 61 alignment.

This was Highway 61 at Campus Boulevard:

Here it is now. The old highway has been completely demolished. A number of nearby structures had to be demolished to make room for the new highway.

One potential issue in the proposed alignment has been found. This is at the current intersection of Milpont Road and Skill Street (facing south). The proposed plan had the interchange with the new Highway 4 alignment near this exact spot. As you can see, there is a substantial stand of redwoods near the intersection.

In order to minimize the environmental impact, the two carriageways of Highway 61 will split and go around the redwoods, and the southbound lanes will take the former alignment of Milpont Road.

Here's a shot showing the site of both sides of Highway 61:

The dirt area on the left side of this pic is the proposed alignment of Highway 4.

Here's the southern end, where the two sides converge again, just past Redwood Way.
