Mormon Lake Road Project (2019)

  1. Mormon Lake North Entrance Closed Starting Monday, August to Complete Road Project

    The north entrance of Mormon Lake Road is scheduled to be closed for several weeks starting Aug. 5 so crews can finish the Mormon Lake Road Reconstruction Project. During this period, motorists will need to access Mormon Lake through the south entrance. Read on...

What's New...

August 2, 2019: Paving of the top and final 1.5-inch layer (lift) of asphalt along Mormon Lake Road has been completed from the south entrance to north of the rodeo grounds. Crews also have also completed the first (bottom) lift of paving of the northbound lane from the rodeo grounds to the area near Montezuma Road at Milepost (MP) 6.2. Pulverization of old pavement is continuing, and the road is pulverized all the way from Montezuma Road north to about MP 8. 

The contractor plans to resume mainline paving in mid-August. Other current project work includes culvert headwall installation, more driveway paving and mainline grading of recently pulverized areas. In addition, crews are working on “punch list” items for the completed section of roadway from the south entrance to the fire station.


Project Overview

The Mormon Lake Road Reconstruction Project includes the mill, overlay and widening of the entire 9.8 miles of roadway along the western shore of Mormon Lake. This $9.5 million project is funded primarily by a Federal Land Access Program (FLAP) grant from CFL, which was awarded to the County in summer 2017. The County’s match of approximately $5 million for this project is funded by Proposition 403, the County’s Road Maintenance Sales Tax.
