Ca;trans crews will close State Route 7 from Maggio road to Heber Road for five consecutive days beginning this Saturday at 9:00 p.m.
Highway 98 from Menveille Road to Keffer Road will also be closed. According to Caltrans , the closures are part of the SR=7 Pavement Improvement Project. Detour signs will be be posted directing northbound passenger vehicles to Menveille Road and than Highway 98.
Construction on the project began last year as crews work to replace the asphalt concrete with a more durable surface. The $11.4 million project is funded through state and federal sources and is expected to be completed by the end of this year. Caltrans says the work will improve the pavement life , ride quality and significantly reduce the need for future maintenance.
