THE NATOMAS BUZZ | @natomasbuzz

The Sacramento County Department of Transportation is scheduled to start work on a a pavement repair project on Garden Highway next week.

Construction will take place June 24-27 and again July 8-26. Work will occur 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., according to a press release issued by the county.

The paving project is expected to result in intermittent daytime lane closures and traffic restrictions on Garden Highway from North Bayou Road to West Elverta Road. There will be no weekend
work for this project.

Lane closures will likely impact both northbound and southbound traffic on Garden Highway including vehicles, pedestrians and bicycles. Emergency vehicles and local resident traffic will be permitted, with the possibility of some delays. This includes access to Teal Bend Golf Club, Alamar Restaurant & Marina and Swabbies on the River.

Pavement repair work will include placement of a two-inch asphalt concrete overlay. Paving and trucking operations may cause long delays. Motorists are encouraged to seek alternate routes include a detour around the repair project. Currently, an interchange project at State Route 99 at Elverta Road is underway and West Elverta Road is closed between Metro Air Parkway and State Route 99.

SMUD Repairs Also Planned

Teal Bend area residents should be aware that SMUD crews will trench the roadway in Spring 2014 to complete utility crossings related to SAFCA work and that the Sacramento County Department of Transportation has decided to repave the entire Teal Bend area rather than wait for SMUD to finish their work. SMUD’s trench work will be repaved in accordance with Sacramento County Construction Standards and observed by county inspection personnel.
