Sponsored by:

Calaveras County, CA – A stretch of Murphys Grade Road will be down to one-way traffic all next week.

Motorists can expect delays of 10 to 15 minutes on the roadway along a 1.5-mile segment of Murphys Grade Road, between Rolleri Bypass and the southern intersection of Murphys Grade and French Gulch Road. The overlay work will begin Monday, Oct. 19th, and run through Friday, Oct. 23rd from  7 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. Traffic lanes will be reduced to one lane with the use of flaggers, pilot cars and warning devices. Motorists are asked to slow down and use caution in the cone zones.

The work is part of the Murphys Grade Road Overlay and Microsurface Project. The section of roadway involved is Murphys Grade Road, between Angels Camp and Murphys. Calaveras County Public Works Department reports that Tom Mayo Construction out of Stockton has been hired to complete the project. County road officials add that the final phase of the project will be to do the stripping, which is tentatively scheduled for the week of Nov, 2nd. Questions on the project can be directed to Calaveras County Public Works at (209)754-6401.
