Tuesday night through Friday morning on Highway 26, crews will focus between Savage Way and Paloma Road. During these same times paving continues on Highway 12 between Cedar Street and Highway 49.
More overnight work starting up Sunday along Highway 4 between Foundry Lane and Anrey Court may cause minor delays all week. Crews will set up nightly at 9 and wind down by 7 a.m., with the last shift ending Friday morning.
Daytime ten-minute delays on Highway 26 will involve guardrail work Wednesday through Friday between Quail Oaks Road and Gold Creek Drive from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m.
On Highway 49, Monday through Thursday grinding and paving between Gun Club Road and Six Mile Creek is planned from 6:30 a.m. until 3 p.m., which may set motorists back a few minutes; as will utility work, which will continue each weekday in San Andreas between Mountain Ranch Road and Main Street from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m.
