North Red Bluff rehabilitation project traveler advisory
Beginning today, Wednesday, June 13 travelers on Interstate 5 (I-5) between Bowman and Hooker Creek roads will use a median crossover detour not typically seen during construction projects.
Northbound traffic lanes have been shifted to the right and the two southbound lanes will be separated at Bowman Road, with the fast lane crossing the median to run opposite of the northbound traffic, separated by a temporary concrete barrier rail.
The slow lane will remain on the southbound side.
All traffic that remains in the fast lane will be unable to change lanes or exit. Nightly, the slow lane will be closed and all exiting traffic will be detoured.
The detours are part of the $34.4 million North Red Bluff Rehabilitation project, which will replace 15 miles of I-5 with a long life, 30-year pavement.
Work on this project is being completed by Tullis, Inc. of Redding.
The crossover detour will be used throughout the duration of the project, switching directions of travel and locations as work progresses.
Caltrans recommends the traveling public check the District 2 Roadwork Bulletin link at dot.ca.gov/dist2/roadinfo.htm, and review the Road Information Bulletin for the locations of ramp closures and dates and times.
The project is anticipated to be complete by the fall of 2013. For additional information, call the Public Information Office at 225-3260 or 229-0511.
