Yuba County — Motorists can expect around-the-clock one-way traffic control over a two-week period on a one-mile segment of State Highway 20 east of Marysville because of construction activity.

Starting at 6 p.m. Sunday, August 4 motorists can expect reversing one-way traffic control 24 hours a day through 7 a.m. August 18 between Kibbe Road and Spring Valley Road in the Loma Rica area of Yuba County. A temporary stoplight will control traffic flow. Drivers coming out of driveways or side roads should wait for cross traffic to pass before entering the highway.

Motorists should allow extra travel time to reach their destinations. Traffic delays could be as much as 20 minutes during peak morning and afternoon commute hours.

The work is part of a $16.8 million project to rehabilitate the pavement, widen shoulders, create a 20-foot clear recovery zone, flatten a rise in the roadway to increase sight distance, improve drainage systems and replace centerline rumble strips from Loma Rica Road to Spring Valley Road. (see map below) The project is made possible due to funds from Senate Bill 1 (SB 1), the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017.

The construction schedule is subject to change due to traffic incidents, weather, availability of equipment and/or materials, and/or construction-related issues. Motorists are encouraged to “Be Work Zone Alert.” More information and updates on projects can be found here, or on Twitter via @CaltransDist3 and on Facebook at CaltransDistrict3.
