FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Yuba County — Caltrans is alerting motorists about daytime and occasional nighttime roadwork on State Highway 70 south of the Feather River in Linda for construction of new bridge rails and a concrete center median barrier.

Crews are working behind temporary concrete barriers, or K-rail, that have been placed in the center median of northbound and southbound Highway 70. Motorists should be alert for a traffic lane shift in each direction between the Feather River Boulevard overcrossing and the North Beale Road on-ramp to northbound Highway 70 at Marysville Bridge.

Bridgeway Civil Constructors of Vacaville is the contractor on this $7.3 million project. Completion is expected this summer.

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.
