In addition to removing snow as conditions allow as detailed here, Caltrans has several areas of road work planned. The detailed scheduled work below may change due to weather, traffic, availability of equipment and other issues.
On Highway 49 from the Tuolumne and Mariposa County line ten miles to Montezuma Road Roailroad look for traffic to be limited to one-way for road striping that will cause 10 minute delays. The work is scheduled Monday through Thursday from 6 AM to 7 PM.
On Highway 49 at the Sonora Creek Bridge be aware of work on the road’s shoulder. The long-term shoulder work began April 3 and is scheduled through April 30. The Caltrans crew’s scheduled hours are 7 AM to 4 PM.

The overnight work is Sunday through Thursday from 8 PM until 6 AM. Daytime hours will be in place for the Twain Harte to Strawberry section with the hours of operation from 6 AM to 6 PM weekdays, with Friday’s shift ending at 3 PM to free the roads for weekend visitors. The three locations are:
- From the SR-49/SR-108 junction (Stockton Street intersection) to Draper Mine Road, about 6 miles
- A half-mile west of Twain Harte Drive and Tuolumne Road North intersection to Stoddard Springs, about 12 miles
- From Bald Mountain Heliport Road to a half-mile west of Herring Creek Lane in the Strawberry area, about 9 miles
