Italian Bar Road Closure In Columbia Extended

Sponsored by:

Columbia, CA — The Tuolumne County Board of Supervisors has extended the “Italian Bar Road Sites 1-5 Storm Damage Repair” project into mid-May.

Crews are currently working on the third of five landslide sites to be repaired on Italian Bar Road. The area that continues to be closed to through traffic is approximately 5.5 miles east of Columbia and 0.8 mile west of the bridge crossing South Fork Stanislaus River in the area of the Lost Dutchman Mining Camp. County road officials relay that construction is now being extended until May 18th.

The ongoing project will create spot closures throughout August. The main work being done is structural excavation and repair of the roadway and its slopes. Sierra Mountain Construction, Inc. was hired by the Tuolumne County Board of Supervisors for the project.  Please be aware of all construction signs or traffic control personnel in the construction zone. Motorists are asked to obey all signage in the area.
