MOUNTAIN AREA — Heads up when it comes to construction and paving delays on parts of Highway 41 and Highway 49, expected to last until early fall in some areas.

Caltrans, in cooperation with Robert J. Frank Construction, announces one-way traffic control on State Route 41 near the community of Fish Camp in Mariposa County over the next three weeks, as crews install a cement barrier in the center-divide intended to increase safety throughout the corridor.

The following one-way traffic control will take place:

  • One-way traffic control will be in effect Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. daily.

Traffic delays could last up to 10 minutes at a time during operations.

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.

Construction 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 construction vehicles and personnel.
