Work Planned Between Laurellen Road and Yuba-Butte County Line 


Yuba County — Caltrans is alerting motorists and residents that traffic-interfering nighttime construction activity is scheduled next week on State Highway 70 between Laurellen Road and the Yuba-Butte County line.

The contractor, DeSilva Gates Construction, plans to perform paving work at various locations from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday, May 7 through May 10. Motorists can expect traffic delays due to one-way traffic control.

Residents in the area may hear loud construction noise, including OSHA-required vehicle backup warning alarms. The contractor will maintain access to all driveways and cross streets during construction. After these operations are completed, traffic will be shifted to a new roadway alignment.

In a separate project at the Yuba-Butte County line, Teichert Construction is performing paving work at the south end of the newly constructed Honcut Creek Bridge. Traffic is scheduled to begin traveling on the new bridge the week of May 8. The traffic shift will allow crews to rehabilitate the existing pavement on the east side of the new structure.

The construction schedules are subject to change due to weather, availability of equipment and/or materials or other construction-related issues.
Caltrans reminds motorists to “Be Work Zone Alert” and that the construction zone speed limit has been reduced to 45 mph. The department also will issue construction updates on Twitter @CaltransDist3 and on Facebook at CaltransDistrict3.
