Caltrans has started two bridge projects that will result in several detours and delays for Shasta County motorists in coming weeks.
The California Department of Transportation, Caltrans District 2 and a local contractor have begun bridge maintenance and repair work on two overpasses in the Redding area.
The Hilltop Avenue overpass at Interstate 5 and Highway 44 will be closed from 8 p.m. Monday until 8 p.m. March 30. A detour will be in place at the Sundial Bridge Drive off ramp.
The second closure will be on the Highway 273 overpass and Interstate 5 overcrossing. The overpass will be closed from 6 a.m. Monday until 8 p.m. Sunday April 5. A detour will be available to Lake Boulevard and Twin View Boulevard via Caterpillar Drive.
Crews will remove and replace asphalt concrete from the bridge decks, reseal the decks and reconstruct guardrails.
Caltrans has established a Road Construction Hotline to keep motorists updated on this and other Caltrans projects. Please call (530) 225-3452 for information on project status and possible delay times.
