Caltrans to work overnight on Highway 9, Fishhook

Starting Sunday night, Caltrans will have a couple projects that will impact the way nighttime drivers get around the county. While one project is set to begin Sunday night on Highway 1, a project that began last week on Highway 9 will begin to wrap up starting Monday night.
  • Come Sunday, Caltrans will begin a paving project that will require the state transportation agency to close the half-mile section of northbound Highway 1 from the Fishhook to the San Lorenzo River Bridge. The four-night project will occur from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. through Thursday, July 29. The work is taking place at night for safety reasons, Caltrans officials said. A detour will be posted. Motorists should expect delays of up to 10 minutes while Caltrans maintenance workers perform the project.
  • Meanwhile, on Highway 9 at Twin Bridges in Felton, a Caltrans contractor on Monday night will commence painting stripes on the road. This, after completing a grinding and paving project it had began last week as part of a road safety project to smooth out the humps and bumps. The striping will take place on a ¬Ĺ-mile stretch of the highway at Twin Bridges from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. through Thursday. Flaggers will direct traffic while crews clean up the road and paint the stripes, Caltrans reported. Delays of less than 5-minutes are expected. The contractor on the $834,000 road safety project is John Madonna Construction of San Luis Obispo.
