  • The closure zones will be up to one-mile long inside of the nine-mile project work area.
  • Traffic could be held for up to 20 minutes at a time while crews work on culvert repairs in the area.
  • Closures may continue for longer periods of time each day if necessary, due to delays caused by weather or uncontrollable events that may occur during construction.

Additionally, Caltrans and Cal Stripe, Inc. announces one-way traffic control over the next two months on State Route 41 in Madera County between the San Joaquin River (Fresno/Madera County line) and State Route 49 in Oakhurst. Construction crews will be restriping and installing rumble strips on the right hand shoulder to increase safety throughout the corridor.

The following night-time one-way traffic control will be in effect, weather permitting:

  • Delays of up to 15 minutes are possible, and depending on traffic volumes, delays may extend longer.
  • One-way traffic control will be in effect Sunday night through Thursday night between the hours of 6:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.

Closures may continue for longer periods of time if necessary, due to delays caused by weather or uncontrollable events that may occur during roadway operations. Motorists are encouraged to avoid this area during project work hours and use alternate routes if possible.

Maintenance Crews will be conducting one way traffic control during this time with the use of flagging personnel through the work zone.  Commuters are reminded to obey flagging personnel and pay close attention to road maintenance vehicles and personnel.
