Traveler Delays On HWY 49 In Downtown Sonora
Sonora, CA — Traffic delays on Highway 49/South Washington Street in downtown Sonora at the beginning of next week to remove scaffolding at the Bank Of America building.
On Monday, November 22, through Wednesday, November 24, there will be intermittent one-way traffic on South Washington Street at the Stockton Street intersection. Flaggers will also be on Stockton Street to the Bradford Street intersection and also along Green Street those days. Crews will be taking down “Falsework” scaffolding in that area. Flaggers will be directing traffic from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. in that area on those dates. It will impact both the morning and evening commute times, which already sees backed-up traffic during those times of the day.
Motorists should expect up to 10-minute delays. Caltrans asks travelers to take alternate routes whenever possible. If that is not an option, they ask that drivers use caution and slow down zones where personnel and equipment are working in the cone zones.
This work is scheduled to begin as listed but is subject to change due to traffic incidents, weather, availability of equipment, and/or materials and construction-related issues.
