*Traffic Advisory*

Caltrans to Begin Repaving Highway 13 Next Week

Caltrans crews will start an eight-week project to repave Highway 13 from Interstate 580 to Highway 24 beginning on Monday night, September 25.

For the duration of the project, one northbound lane of Highway 13 will be closed Monday through Friday at various locations from 8 p.m. each night until 6 a.m. the following morning. One southbound lane of the highway will be closed Monday through Friday at various locations from 10 p.m. each night until 6 a.m. the following morning. During the closures, one lane will remain open to traffic traveling in each direction.

For public convenience, all closures will have clearly-marked detours in place according to contract plans governing this project. In addition, two electronic message signs will be placed at the beginning and end of the project limits to advise motorists. Some traffic delays are expected and motorists are advised to use alternate routes when possible.

Motorists can get the latest information on lane closures and construction activities by calling the Highway 13 construction hotline at (510) 286-7396.
