Highway safety improvements to temporarily close Highway 32
Saturday, June 29, 2013 — The California Department of Transportation District 2 along with contractor Dig It Construction, Inc. from Chester will be closing portions of Highway 32 in Tehama County to make highway safety improvements in the area.
Work on the $2.9 million Deer Creek Realignment Project is scheduled to begin July 15 — 2.5 miles west of the junction of highways 32 and 36 near the Elam Campground. One-way traffic control will be in effect from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday for two weeks.
Full closure of Highway 32 is expected to begin July 29 and continue through September. The entire project is expected to be completed by November, weather permitting.
During the full closure, Highway 32 will be closed beginning at 6 a.m. weekly Monday through Thursday and will reopen at 6 a.m. Fridays through Sunday. Drivers can expect one-way traffic control with up to 15-minute delays Friday through Sunday.
Detours will be available via Highway 36 to 99 or Highway 89 to 70 and down the Feather River Canyon.
Crews will improve the horizontal curves on Highway 32 by constructing 12-foot lanes and four-foot shoulders in addition to installing guard railing along the road.
Caltrans has set up a hotline: 225-3452. It can be accessed 24-hours-a-day and will provide updates about current projects, including the Deer Creek Realignment Project. You can also find more information by visiting caltrans2.info.
Caltrans would also like to remind the traveling public to move over if safe or slow down when they see Caltrans vehicles flashing warning lights along the side of the highways, and to slow for the cone zone.
