Sutter County — Caltrans is alerting the traveling public that the speed limit along the construction stretch of State Route 20 in Sutter is reduced to 45 mph beginning today. Signs and CMS boards have been placed along the highway stating the change. Construction crews have also reduced the lane width to 11 feet during construction and have placed k-rail through the construction zone area.

Caltrans and local officials broke ground on this major Senate Bill 1-funded pavement restoration and bridge replacement project on State Route 20 west of Yuba City on August 16. More than 8,100 vehicles and 600 trucks per day use this segment of State Route 20.
Knife River Construction of Chico is the contractor on the project, which will rehabilitate the pavement, widen shoulders, improve drainage systems and replace an aging bridge over the Wadsworth Canal.

SB 1 provides an additional $5 billion each year in state and local funding to maintain and optimize California’s transportation system. SB 1 funds will enable Caltrans to fix more than 17,000 lane miles of pavement, 500 bridges and 55,000 culverts by 2027.
Caltrans is committed to conducting its business in a fully transparent manner and detailing its progress to the public. For complete details on SB 1, visit Rebuilding California.
