Mother Lode Road Roundup

Tree trimming, paving, bridge and utility work by Caltrans will slow traffic on several highways in the Mother Lode next week with delays up to 15 minutes in some areas.

Caltrans provides this schedule for Highway 108:

  • One-way traffic control on eastbound and westbound SR-108 from Soulsbyville Road to Strawberry East for tree work beginning Monday, August 8, 2016, through Friday, August 12, 2016, from 6:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.
