Project Information

Caltrans and the City of Live Oak are alerting residents that 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. Visit the Business Access Map to find access points or look for signs along the highway marking the temporary entrances.

What Are We Doing

In order to improve the roadways, streetscapes and safety we are doing the following:

  • Upgrading the drainage systems
  • Rehabilitating the roadway to achieve a 40-year design life
  • Flattening the roadway cross slopes
  • Constructing new continuous sidewalks
  • Traffic signal improvements at three intersections of Highway 99 at Pennington Road, Elm Street and Kola Street
  • Creating a pedestrian focused downtown environment by enhancing parking and building access, wayfinding and signage, landscaping and facilities for bicyclists and pedestrians
  • Widen the highway to five lanes, including a center two-way left turn lane and left turn pockets

The $36 million project is funded in part by a $10 million federal
Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery grant
and $2.3 million from Senate Bill 1, the California Road Repair and
Accountability Act of 2017.

 

Pennington Road east will be closed to traffic at State Highway 99/Live Oak Boulevard beginning late Wednesday, November 3, 2021  for construction activity. Construction crews will begin restriping this section of highway and shifting temporary concrete barriers. Beginning at 5 p.m., the east side of the Pennington Road intersection will be closed to traffic through mid-December. See Penning Road Closure map.

Motorists and pedestrians should use either Elm Street or Kola Street for State Highway 99 access or to cross the highway. During work on the east side of the intersection, southbound Highway 99 travelers will be permitted to make right turns onto Pennington Road west. However, left turns onto west Pennington will be prohibited for northbound motorists.
