Highway 236 is going to close Monday for up to four weeks as workers repair a slip-out that occurred in March. And flaggers will be on scene controlling the flow of traffic on the narrow Acorn Drive, a residential street that goes around the work zone.
Work to restore the roadway is expected to last about two months, but the closure will last three to four weeks, Caltrans officials said.
Crews plan to work dawn until dusk, six days weekly to hasten the repairs.
During the closure, the official detour for large vehicles, such as RVs and trucks, is upper Highway 9, Big Basin and State Route 236. But, while being aware that area residents will use Acorn Drive, Caltrans will have flaggers posted from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. More times will be added as necessary.
Signs also will be posted to make motorists aware of the weight limit for trucks on Acorn Drive during the closure. What’s more, additional signs will mark dead ends in the Forest Springs neighborhood.
