Original post written by BJ Hansen at 10:20 a.m.: Sonora, CA — There is slow and go traffic in the area around the new Bank of Stockton under construction at 549 South Washington Street in Sonora.
Some related road and shoulder work around the property is notably impacting traffic, and work will continue at least through tomorrow. The contractor doing the work has closed South Stewart Street, between Lytton and William, and Lytton Street, between South Stewart and South Washington.
In addition, there is one-way traffic control on South Washington Street between Lytton and William. Since Washington Street is a very heavily traveled road, it is resulting in occasional traffic backups in the downtown area.
The work is scheduled to continue at least through tomorrow, between 6 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
