SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - A major construction operation that requires midnight, full highway closures on northbound I-5 between Anderson and Redding from Oct. 9-11 was announced by Caltrans District 2.

Construction crews will be installing pre-cast concrete girders for the replacement of the South Anderson Railroad Overhead, one of the project’s main components, Caltrans said.

The girders are up to 146 feet long and weigh up to 164,000 pounds. This structural work is for the Redding to Anderson Six Lane Expansion Project on Interstate 5 in Shasta County, also known as the SB1-RASL Project, Caltrans said.

The closures are needed for the safety of highway workers and the public due to the presence of large cranes and other equipment, Caltrans said.

All drivers are strongly advised to follow the speed limits, slow down, focus on driving, and respect the cone zones.

Air quality has worsened for most of northern California as a lot of smoke from our area fires as settled over the valleys and foothills. We can expect more hazy, smoky sunshine on Tuesday with light to moderate breezes as autumn begins.
