CALTRANS BEGINS WORK ON STATE ROUTE 165 AT WESTSIDE BOULEVARD IN MERCED COUNTY
Merced County – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has begun work on a project to realign a segment of State Route 165, south of the Merced River Bridge at Westside Boulevard, to improve safety and increase the efficiency of the intersection.
In addition to realigning the intersection, the shoulder will be widened with rumble strips ground into the pavement to alert drivers when their vehicles leave their traffic lane. The project will improve efficiency and safety for motorists traveling in Merced County.
One-way traffic control is expected to begin on Monday, April 17, 2017. Drivers should plan for 10-minute delays and seek alternative routes when possible. The project is scheduled to be completed in August 2017.
George Reed, Inc. of Modesto, is performing the work under a $1.22 million contract.
Construction is scheduled to begin as listed, but is subject to change due to traffic incidents, weather, availability of equipment and/or materials and construction related issues.
