The Department of Transportation (Caltrans) announced that contractor Northwest Paving will continue to implement one-way traffic control operations at multiple locations along State Route (SR) 41. The contractor plans to complete pavement chip seal operations along State Route 41 near Oakhurst in Madera County as part of a pavement rehabilitation project. This project is scheduled to be completed within a 25-working day time frame.
The following schedule will be in place next week:
Monday, Aug. 10 through Friday Aug. 14, 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day. The contractor plans to complete chip seal operations with flaggers and pilot car along State Route 41 near Oakhurst from Cedar Valley Road to Yosemite National Park. Final striping operations within these location will follow after grinding/paving operations are complete.
Construction crews will continue conducting one way traffic control at these locations and during the work hours listed above with the use of a pilot car and flagging personnel through the work zone.
Commuters are reminded to obey flagging personnel and pay close attention to road construction vehicles and personnel at all times. It is anticipated that motorists will be subject to a 10-minute delay during construction.
Motorists who are delayed at driveways and intersections will be required to wait for pilot car and adhere to all signage in order to safely proceed through the work zone.
Commuters are encouraged to avoid these areas during project work hours and use alternate routes if possible. Closures may continue for longer periods of time if necessary, due to delays caused by weather or uncontrollable events that may occur during road construction procedures.
