OAKHURST — Caltrans has postponed construction on Highway 41 in the Oakhurst area that was scheduled to begin on Monday, Mar. 4. The work is now set to start a week later, on Monday, Mar. 11, and motorists should be prepared for traffic delays at that time as construction work gets underway.
Caltrans, in cooperation with Agee Construction, says one-way traffic control on the north end of town will last for about two weeks, weather permitting, as part of a culvert repair project.
Traffic control will be in place on weekdays from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. from Monday, Mar. 11, to Friday, Mar. 22, near Empty Creek Road.
Delays of up to 15 minutes are possible. Closures may continue for longer periods due to delays caused by weather or uncontrollable events during construction.
Construction crews will be conducting one-way traffic control with flagging personnel through the work zone. Commuters are reminded to obey flagging personnel and pay close attention to road construction vehicles and personnel.
