amanda britton started this petition to Caltrans Chief Public Information Officer: Corie Reed

Please join me in safe travels on HWY 162, by requesting Caltrans, please keep a truck stationed in  Covelo year round. Keeping a Caltrans truck stationed within the valley will provide our community with safer roads and a faster response time to road hazards such as rocks in the road caused by wind, rain, snow,or accidents.

PETITION BACKGROUND

The Round Valley Community knows that there is a Caltrans employee living in Covelo that is an active member in our community. Caltrans gave permission to house the truck for the winter months and during covid-19 pandemic. During this time the community had few complaints of the road being unsafe due to rocks and were very grateful when they saw the Caltrans workers on the road . Now, we have heard that the Caltrans truck has been discontinued for the summer.    In the past when the state has had an employee that is a resident of Covelo they  would house a Caltrans truck here all year long. This enables Caltrans to respond to road hazards, maintain the road and community safety in an appropriate time frame, and help keep the roads open during natural disasters  (fires, wind,  heavy rains, and snow). If we had a Caltrans truck housed in Covelo then the response time could be faster than having to wait for them to dispatch a truck  out of Willits which is an hour away.
