GLENN COUNTY — Construction crews plan to start work next month on a $2.9 million project to upgrade sidewalks, driveways and curb ramps along State Highway 32 (Newville Road/Walker Street) in Orland.

Motorists and community members may expect shoulder and parking restrictions during construction, which is scheduled to begin on Monday, November 2 and continue through December. Construction activity will take place primarily during the daytime hours on weekdays. There may be occasional nighttime and Saturday work.

Construction will occur along two segments of Highway 32:

  • Between the southbound Interstate 5 off-ramp to Highway 32 and Ninth Street.
  • Between Fourth Street and Woodward Avenue.

Crews will be working on one side of the highway at a time. The contractor will provide temporary pedestrian access routes when sections of sidewalks are closed to foot traffic. In addition, crews will maintain access to all businesses during construction. California Highway Construction Group of Concord is the contractor.

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. For real-time traffic, click on Caltrans’ QuickMap or download the QuickMap app from the App Store or Google Play
