Tree Removal Will Cause Delays On SR-41

FISH CAMP — Heading from Oakhurst to Yosemite next week? Be prepared for delays, weather permitting.

The Department of Transportation (Caltrans) announced today that beginning on Monday, Sept. 26, one-way traffic control will be in effect on State Route 41 in Mariposa County for five days as part of a tree removal project taking place in Madera and Mariposa counties.

The following one-way traffic control will take place, weather permitting, according to Caltrans’ Cory Burkarth.

“Beginning Monday, Sept. 26, and ending on Friday, Sept. 30, one-way traffic control will be effect on a five-mile stretch on State Route 41 in Mariposa County, beginning at the Madera/Mariposa county line.”

This one-way traffic control will be effect each day from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m., and the closure zones will be up to one mile long inside of the five-mile tree removal area, says Caltrans.

“Traffic will be held for up to 15 minutes at a time while fallen trees are removed from the roadway,” says Burkarth. “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 maintenance.”

Commuters are asked to obey flagging personnel and pay close attention to maintenance vehicles and personnel at all times.
