Colusa County — Caltrans is alerting motorists to expect around-the-clock one-way traffic control next week on State Highway 16 in Colusa County. 

Motorists are advised to allow additional travel time when driving on a 7-mile segment of roadway between the Highway 16/Highway 20 junction and the Colusa-Yolo county line. 

Construction crews are scheduled to conduct continuous reversing one-way traffic control at various locations from 6 a.m.  Monday, August 22, through 6 p.m. Friday, August 26 for pavement work.

From August 29 through the end of October, motorists can expect one-way traffic control in the construction area from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, with possible roadwork occurring on Saturdays. Flaggers will be stationed at each end of the construction zone during traffic control.

The schedule is subject to change due to weather, equipment or material availability or other unexpected events. Knife River Construction of Chico is the contractor for the $6 million paving project.

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.
