Drivers are urged to slow down in the La Barr Meadows road area of HWY 49 as Cal-Trans moves iint to the next phase of construction. Weather permitting, beginning today ( October 3) and continuing until Thursday October 6, Motorists can also expect intermittent traffic controls in both directions of Highway 49 between Pingree Road and Cornette Way from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.
Mark Dinger with Cal-Trans says some of the lane re configuration for construction staging will call for detours in the area.
“Some of this construction staging is going to cause some temporary detours at several intersections throughout the project area. These configurations are temporary, but expected to remain in place for three to four weeks.”
Dinger says recent extra activity in the area has come on the news of a winter storm that could slow construction and the crews are trying to work ahead of the weather.
