Live Oak — Caltrans is alerting motorists and pedestrians that Pennington Road east will be closed to traffic at State Highway 99/Live Oak Boulevard beginning late Wednesday for construction activity.
At 7 a.m. Wednesday, November 3, construction crews will begin restriping this section of highway and shifting temporary concrete barriers from the west to the east side of the highway in preparation for upcoming widening work. Beginning at 5 p.m., the east side of the Pennington Road intersection will be closed to traffic through mid-December.
Motorists and pedestrians should use either Elm Street or Kola Street for State Highway 99 access or to cross the highway.
