Highway 18 Preventative Maintenance to Begin in May

By Susan A. Neufeld

Mountain Communities – Maintenance on Hwy 18 is set to begin in May, the work is estimated to begin May 22 and is subject to change based on material and other construction factors.

Flagging will be necessary during the work hours, which will be Monday through Thursday — from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. No work will take place on Fridays or weekends.  This project is expected to last until late June.

Motorists are advised to plan ahead, allow extra time for their commute, and consider alternate routes to avoid the work. Caltrans will  have staff on scene, with CHP to monitor traffic during flagging.

Remember to always SLOW FOR THE CONE ZONE.
