Caltrans paving project on State Route 1 from Gualala River Bridge to Point Arena beginning Aug. 17

NORTH COAST, Calif. – Caltrans will begin a new paving project on State Route 1 from Sonoma County (Gualala River Bridge) to 0.1 Mile south of Mill Street in Point Arena in Mendocino County on Monday, Aug. 17, and will continue for a four-month duration.

The work scope consists of removing and replacing 4 inches of distressed pavement with new asphalt pavement, overlaying the existing pavement, and reconstructing dikes, guardrails and roadside signs for the entire 15 miles of the project.

There will be a 24-hour daily work schedule, Monday through Friday, beginning Monday at 6 a.m. and ending Friday at 7 p.m.

One-way traffic lanes in both northbound and southbound directions will remain open.

Controlled road closures will begin in segments, starting with the Gualala River Bridge to Big Gulch Road.

Motorists can expect controlled closures with a pilot car and flaggers and 10-minutes delays.

All business accesses will remain open during construction.

All pedestrian access routes will remain functional, providing temporary pedestrian access routes as needed.

Business owners will receive scheduled updates 72-hours in advance of any work taking place in front of their businesses.

All intersections, driveways, and alleys will have the signs “wait for pilot” to prevent conflict with the direction of the traffic within the closure.

Caltrans asks motorists to drive safely through this construction zone.

Caltrans District 1 maintains the state highways in Del Norte, Humboldt, Mendocino and Lake counties. The department issues updates about road conditions on Twitter and Facebook.
