Caltrans urges motorists to use caution when driving by road projects this winter. Here is a list of their scheduled highway work for the first week of February.
On Highway 49 at Jack Page Road, north of Sonora, all the way to the Tuolumne/Calaveras county line expect 10 minute delays for an area of one-way traffic control as Caltrans works on striping the road. The work is scheduled between 8PM and 6AM beginning Monday night and each evening, through Friday morning, weather permitting. From 6 AM to 7 PM on HWY 49 at the Montezuma junction 10 miles to Cattle Guard Road more road striping work will also cause 10 minute delays.
At the Yosemite Junction look for Caltrans workers limiting traffic to one way for shoulder work and drainage work. The work is scheduled between 8 PM and 6 AM starting Sunday and each night through Friday morning. Those same nights and during the day as well, starting at the Stanislaus/Tuolumne County line, there will be areas of one-way traffic control to allow drainage and shoulder work along HWY 108/120. It may delay travelers 10 minutes. More areas of night-time drainage work are planned and may delay traffic for 10 minutes on HWY 120 in the Moccasin Creek Bridge area.
On Highway 26 in Calaveras 12 miles of tree work will restrict traffic to one lane and cause estimated 10 minute delays from Ridge Road to the Calaveras/ Amador county line. Hours of work, weather permitting, are 7Am to 4PM Monday thru Friday.
