Two road impovement projects are under way in the area, and motorists need to prepare for delays.
Drivers headed north out of Oakhurst should expect traffic delays on Highway 41 between Cedar Valley and Fish Camp.
From Oct. 15 through Oct. 19, the pavement rehab project will continue on both sides of the road. No construction work will be done on weekends, however, according to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).Caltrans announced Thursday that the project should be completed by the end of the month, if the weather holds.
Flaggers and pilot cars will be used in both directions between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. Drivers should be prepared for 15-minute delays on Highway 41 north of Oakhurst, where Teichert Construction Company is conducting the dike work and shoulder-backing operations.
Another road project in the area is along Highway 49 west of Oakhurst, between Redbud and Harmony Lane, where Caltrans is building up the shoulders of the road. CHP Sgt. Ed Greene says there will be one-way traffic between 8:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. through Monday, Oct. 15. Greene asks the public to be patient while traveling these roadways, and plan accordingly to accomodate delays.
