Motorists are encouraged to use an alternate route around the construction work zone and should expect delays and plan for additional travel time.

Motorists should be aware of commercial work vehicles traveling in and out of the area.

The speed limit has been reduced to 55 mph through the construction zone 24/7. The California Highway Patrol will be patrolling the project site and ticketing motorists who are not adhering to the posted speed limit signs. The closures and speed-limit reductions are necessary for the safety of motorists and workers. Please “Be Work Zone Alert.”

Nearby residents can expect loud construction and commercial truck back-up beeping noises during day and nighttime hours.

Work is scheduled to begin as listed but subject to change due to traffic incidents, weather, availability of equipment and/or materials, and construction-related issues.
