Highway 20 – 70 Detours Day 1

Patience and and early departure.  Those are my best pieces of advise concerning the newly begun roadwork on Highways 20 & 70 in the Marysville area.

My first drive from Yuba City into the work zone started 15 minutes early.  Here are my impressions.  Good signage as you come down the 10th Street Bridge.  You know in advance which lane you want to be in at the bottom of the bridge.  Once I made the turn, the signage disappeared.  Luckily I know my way around Marysville (it is Marysville after all, not San Francisco) and was able to work my way back to where I needed to be headed.

Just be aware there are now some one way streets that until this past weekend were two way streets.  My wife helped me avoid a wrong tune Sunday afternoon.  She has sharp eyes and is such a big help to me.   I was on my own this morning and double checked each street before I turned to make sure any cars parked were pointed in the direction I wanted to go.

The men & women of Cal-trans seem to have put a lot of thought into how to move the traffic through the work zone.  With something this complex there were sure to be first day mistakes.  If you have business to do in the Yuba Sutter Area don;t be scared off by the roadwork.  Just remember my first sentence in today’s blog.
