SUTTER COUNTY — Motorists may expect significant travel delays early next week when traveling through the Live Oak area on State Highway 99.

Crews plan to conduct reversing one-way traffic control from 6 p.m. Monday to 2 a.m. Tuesday and 5 p.m. Tuesday to 12:01 a.m. Wednesday for paving work on the south end of Live Oak. Motorists are advised to use alternate routes to avoid congestion during the peak afternoon and early evening commute hours.

Motorists also can expect crews to perform striping work in the area later in the week. By late Friday, Nov. 6 the contractor is scheduled to reopen access to Highway 99 at Birch Street, Ash Street, Walker Way and Archer Avenue.

The roadwork is part of a $36 million project by Caltrans and the City of Live Oak to replace the old pavement, flatten the roadway, construct new sidewalks, curbs and gutters upgrade drainage systems, and  traffic, bicycle and pedestrian signals between Pennington Road and Elm Street.

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
