Yuba County — Caltrans is alerting motorists about traffic-interfering roadwork scheduled for Saturday, November 5 on State Highway 70 north of Marysville.

Crews plan to conduct reversing one-way traffic control from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. at various locations between Laurellen Road and Woodruff Lane for drainage work. Motorists should expect 10- to 20-minute delays.

Flaggers at each end of the construction zone will be used along with a pilot vehicle. Motorists are reminded that pilot vehicles are to be followed at all times within the project zone for the safety of construction crews and travelers. Failure to follow pilot vehicles may result in a $220 citation with traffic fines doubled in construction zones.

Caltrans reminds motorists the construction zone speed limit has been reduced to 45 mph between Laurellen Road in Yuba County and East Gridley Road in Butte County, where a separate construction project is underway.

The drainage work is part of a $131 million Yuba County project that will widen and pave the shoulders to 8 feet, provide a 14-foot-wide two-way left turn lane, continuous passing lanes and additional 6-foot-wide unpaved shoulders for slow-moving farm equipment. The project will straighten some curves to improve sight distance, replace or repair culverts, repave the roadway and create a 20-foot clear recovery zone for errant drivers to return their vehicle safely to the roadway.

DeSilva Gates Construction of Dublin, Alameda County, is the prime contractor. Completion is targeted for December 2023. The schedule is subject to change due to weather, availability of equipment and/or materials or other construction-related issues.
