More Delays On HWY 108 Bypass

Tuolumne County – Caltrans reports more repairs and delays for commuters on the Highway 108 Bypass in Tuolumne County. Flaggers will be doing one-way traffic control on Highway108 from Standard Road/Mono Way to Draper Mine Road. Crews will begin paving that section tomorrow and Friday from 7:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.
Motorists should expect 20 minute delays and might want to take an alternative route.

However, Caltrans Spokesperson Angela Daprato says, “If possible they can, but we know there are a lot of residents there and if they can’t we are going to try to make sure we don’t make more delays than we have to and keep it under 20 minutes, but it is a construction area.”

The construction is part of the $52.9 million Highway 108 East Sonora Bypass Stage II Project that began on April 19, 2012. The project will construct a two-lane expressway on a new alignment from Peaceful Oak Road to Via Este Road. A partial interchange at Peaceful Oak Road, a grade separation at Mono Way and a temporary at-grade “T” intersection connecting Mono Way to the new expressway will also be built. In addition, a frontage road connecting existing Highway108 with both Seaborn Road and Waif Road will be built.
