State Route 17 Drain System Upgrades

Click to Open

Santa Clara County - The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will start a project this week to upgrade a highway drainage system and repair slopes along State Route 17 in Santa Clara County from .3 mile south of Alma College to .2 mile north of Bear Creek Road overcrossing.

On State Route 17, construction will close one lane and leave one lane open during the weekday night time from 9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. in the northbound direction and 11:00 p.m. to 5 a.m. in the southbound direction.

On Old Santa Cruz Highway, construction will close one lane during the weekday day time from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and perform one-way traffic control with flaggers directing traffic.

Construction noise will be unavoidable; however, it will be kept within approved construction noise levels.

Motorists can expect some delays, but flaggers and CHP will be on the job site to assist traffic flow. In addition, traffic signs will be in place throughout the construction area.

The project will be completed in late summer, 2014.
