Caltrans Work, Beginning July 30
Sonora, CA – Come Sunday, overnight crews will be busy in three Calaveras County locations, bringing probable ten-minute delays all week long through Friday morning.
The first is along Highway 26 in Valley Springs where improvements including a signal light installment project continues between Gee Lane and County View Drive. Caltrans plans to work nearly around the clock this week here so expect similar delays as the day shift is onsite focusing on signal work from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. Overnight hours will run from 7 p.m. until 6 a.m.
During those same hours along Highway 4, grinding and paving will be in progress between Borbe Ranch Road by Angels Camp and Davis Ranch Road near Douglas Flat. The third overnight work zone, along Highway 49 between the vista point At New Melones Reservoir and Angels Creek, will also set up nightly at 7 a.m. and remain in place until 6 a.m. through Friday morning as crews attend to grinding chores there.
Other Highway Hot Spots
Look for other Highway 4 cone zones every weekday between Pennsylvania Gulch and Apple Blossom/Dam Road while curb, gutter and sidewalk work is in progress along the shoulder from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. While that will not likely cause any traffic hiccups, ten-minute waits should be anticipated from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. as crews working between Moran Road and the Big Trees State Park entrance attend to drainage improvements.
In Tuolumne County, utility work on Highway 120 every weekday is likely to trigger ten-minute delays between the Chinese Camp railroad crossing and Perricone Road from 6:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
At the Highway 120 James E Roberts Bridge while no overnight closures are in the works, motorists should plan for the customary 24/7 ten-minute delays under automated one-way traffic control as renovation works along that span continues through November.
