FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SUTTER COUNTY — Caltrans announced today a contractor has postponed plans to start around the clock one-way traffic control this week on State Highway 20 west of Yuba City.
Construction crews are now tentatively scheduled to conduct one-way traffic control between Acacia Avenue and Humphrey Road from 9 p.m. Friday, September 11 through 6 a.m. Friday, September 18. Motorists are advised to seek alternative routes to avoid congestion in the area.
The schedule change is due to recent lightning strikes that caused damage to an asphalt plant used by the contractor.
Next month’s lane restrictions will allow crews to realign the roadway to connect to a newly constructed bridge spanning the Wadsworth Canal.
The highway work is part of a $37.7 million project funded in part by Senate Bill 1 (SB 1), the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017, to restore nearly 12 lane miles of pavement between Lytle Road and the Sutter Bypass, widen the shoulders and replace the Wadsworth Canal Bridge.
Weather or unexpected events may delay or prolong the work. Caltrans advises motorists to “Be Work Zone Alert.” The department will issue construction updates on Twitter @CaltransDist3 and on Facebook at CaltransDistrict3.
