MADERA COUNTY — Commuters and others in the Oakhurst area can expect delays on two busy local highways for several weeks, lasting into September, while the road is repaved.
Caltrans, in cooperation with Teichert Construction, announces one-way traffic control on State Route 41 and State Route 49 near the community of Oakhurst in Madera County for “several weeks due to paving operations.”
The following one-way traffic control will be in effect:
- Starting Monday, July 16 and ending mid-September, one-way traffic control will be in effect at various locations on State Route 41 and State Route 49 in Madera County.
- Work on State Route 41 will begin at Cedar Valley Road and end at the south gate entrance into Yosemite National Park.
- Work on State Route 49 will begin at Deer Creek and end at the Madera/Mariposa county line.
- One-way traffic control will be in effect Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. daily.
- The closure zones will be up to one-half mile long inside of the respective project work area.
Caltrans says traffic delays could last for up to 20 minutes at a time during paving operations.
Closures may continue for longer periods of time each day if necessary, due to delays caused by uncontrollable events that may occur during construction.
One-way traffic control will be conducted with the use of flagging personnel through the work zone. Commuters are reminded to obey flagging personnel and pay close attention to vehicles and personnel in construction zones.
Slow for the cone zone.
