Stanislaus County - The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will close southbound State Route 99 (SR-99) from the Pine Street overcrossing to Hatch Road in Ceres.
Work will begin on Wednesday, June 30, 2010, through Friday, July 2, 2010, from 11:59 p.m. until 5:00 a.m.
Crews will work on the falsework for the new interchange.
SR-99 southbound detour is:
• east on Hatch Road;
• south on Herndon Avenue;
• south on Central Avenue;
• south on El Camino Avenue to southbound SR-99.
This full highway closure is necessary to ensure the safety of motorists and workers in the area.
Motorists should expect 10 minute delays. Alternate routes should be taken whenever possible. This work is scheduled to begin as listed, but is subject to change based on weather conditions.
The contractor for this $26 million project is Nehemiah Construction of Benicia, CA. The SR-99 Whitmore Avenue Interchange Project will alleviate peak hour congestion along Whitmore Avenue with a new wider overcrossing/overhead and widen Whitmore Avenue to four lanes from Blaker Road and Central Avenue.
For the safety of workers and other motorists, please Slow For the Cone Zone.
