Parking Project Planned by Mokelumne River Bridge at State Route 49


There may be periodic minor traffic delays on State Route 49 at the Mokelumne River this summer due to construction of a new parking lot.

The Bureau of Land Management’s Mother Lode Field Office expects to start work on the Big Bar parking project in early May and finish it in late August. It will provide 18 parking spaces for rafting put in/take out and river recreation use.

Some construction will be along the highway and the BLM is asking the public to use caution while driving through this area and watch for construction workers and equipment. There will be approximately two to three weeks when traffic control is required and there may be minor delays.

For more information, contact the BLM’s Mother Lode Field Office at (916) 941-3101.
