Caltrans Postpones Route 140 Construction Project

MARIPOSA – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has postponed crosswalk construction as part of the Mariposa Pedestrian Safety Project on State Route 140 from the south junction of Route 49 to Twelfth Street in historic downtown Mariposa.

Construction of curbs and sidewalks at Route 140 and 11th and 12th streets is scheduled beginning Tuesday, Jan. 18, through Friday, Jan. 21, 2022, from 6:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

However, construction of high-visibility, stamped-concrete crosswalks at Route 140 and 7th and 8th streets, and a resulting 72-hour lane closure from 8 p.m. Monday, Jan. 17, through 6 a.m. Friday, Jan. 21, 2022, has been postponed until further notice.

District 10 will provide updates via news releases and social media (Facebook @CaltransDistrict10, Twitter @CaltransDist10).

The purpose of the construction project is to enhance safety for motorists and pedestrians and improve mobility/accessibility by installing high-visibility crosswalks, crosswalk lighting, in-road warning lights, and curb ramps, in accordance with the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA).

This work is scheduled to continue as listed, but is subject to change due to traffic incidents, weather, availability of equipment, and/or materials and construction related issues.

For the safety of workers and other motorists, please Be Work Zone Alert.
