Weekly Project Update
Major highway construction activity will occur on State Highway 99/ Live Oak Boulevard, starting on May 1. Access for residents and businesses will be provided through the construction area. There will be highway access to all businesses in the construction area. Look for signs along the highway marking the temporary entrances.
The roadwork will widen the highway from two lanes to five lanes, which includes either a two-left turn lane in the center of the roadway or room for left-turn pockets at intersections.
This Week’s Update – May 10-15:
State Route 99 (Sutter County) between Coleman Avenue and Nevada Street north: North- and southbound motorists may expect shoulder, auxiliary lane, lane restrictions and side street closures at various times and locations from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday for underground utility, drainage, sidewalk, curb, gutter, driveway and electrical work.
State Route 99 (Sutter County) at Walker Way, Archer Avenue east, Elm Street east, Nevada Street east and Adeline Avenue: Motorists may expect these streets closed to and from State Route 99 for roadway construction.
& Alternate Routes
Traffic will be temporarily shifted to the west side of the existing roadway between Archer Avenue and Pennington Road between May 1 to July 30. Traffic will also be temporarily shifted to the west side of the existing roadway starting at Myrtle Street and continuing past Ramsdell Drive between May 1 and June 1. This will allow crews to repair and rehabilitate the existing highway roadway.
Motorists should be alert to temporary concrete barriers, or K-rail, placed on both sides of the highway in the work zone. The traffic lanes also will be narrower – from the usual 12 feet wide to 11 feet wide.
Trucking companies should be aware about restrictions for hauling oversize wide loads through Live Oak. The Caltrans Transportation Permit Office in Sacramento has set a maximum width of 10 feet for oversize loads such as mobile homes and heavy equipment.
