Transportation


Backroads in the Sierra

One thing that people notice when they first visit Calaveras County is that they don’t hear traffic reports on the morning or evening news. That is because Calaveras County doesn’t have traffic jams. The roads are not congested and are well-maintained. In fact, one can travel wide expanses of road without even encountering stop signs or stop lights.

However, the County is well-served by four state highways and numerous ancillary roads. For commercial transport, the uncongested roads offer easy access to the major state and interstate freeways including highways 5, 50, 80, and 99, and to commercial and cargo airports, and large container shipping ports. Convenient and efficient parcel pick-up and delivery is available through multiple, reliable vendors throughout the County.
