LIVE OAK, Calif. — Caltrans is alerting motorists and pedestrians that Pennington Road will be closed to cross traffic at State Highway 99/Live Oak Boulevard next week for construction activity.

Crews are scheduled to begin closing the west side of the intersection at 9 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 7, as they prepare to rebuild the roadway. The intersection will be closed to cross traffic through the end of November.

Motorists and pedestrians should use either Elm Street or Kola Street for State Highway 99 access, where flaggers will be temporarily stationed during daytime hours to conduct traffic control and allow for a safe crossing. Four-way stop signs will control traffic during overnight hours.

Crews are expected to install permanent traffic signals at the two intersections by Sept. 14.

During work on the west side of the intersection, northbound Highway 99 travelers will be permitted to make right turns onto east Pennington. However, left turns onto east Pennington will be prohibited for southbound motorists.

The contractor will maintain access to businesses during construction. Caltrans reminds motorists to be alert for trucks entering and exiting the roadway, and crews working along the highway.

Visit www.LiveOak99.com for the latest news and updates as well as maps showing access to businesses in the construction area, business deals for consumers, photo simulations of the boulevard including traffic lane striping for the five-lane roadway after construction, and other information. You also may connect with the Live Oak 99 social media campaign: Facebook and Twitter.

Weather or unexpected events may delay or postpone work. Other construction updates in the region are posted Twitter @CaltransDist3 and on Facebook at CaltransDistrict3.
