Caltrans will begin a $1.9-million project to surface seal Highway 243 from near Keenwild Guard Station to about one-half mile west of Vista Point, along a 12-mile stretch. Construction begins Monday, Aug. 31, between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. The project was postponed to this date because of Jazz in the Pines.
Completion is estimated to take three weeks. One-lane traffic control will be in effect. No work is scheduled during the Labor Day holiday.
This project moves forward through the use of Federal Stimulus Funds. It is one of 14 projects in the Inland Empire that received $200.9 million in federal stimulus funding.
The signs are posted as an advance advisory for local traffic.
Motorists should reduce their speed and follow all advisory signs posted in the project limits. Caltrans asks that motorist be aware of the construction area and always make a point to slow for the cone zone.
