CHICO, CALIF. - Lanes will be closed on both sides of Cohasset Road between Eaton Avenue and East Avenue for the next three days, said a representative from Knife River Construction of Chico. It is part of hte $1.5 million road project designed to smooth out the bumpy transportation corridor than connects Chico to the airport and industrial area at the north end of the city.

On Wednesday, May 23, 2018 the #2 lanes (next to the sidewalk) will be closed in both directions. On Thursday they will do work on the inside (#1) lanes. On Friday they will close the middle "chicken" lanes and the intersections.

The work will be done between 6:00 a.m. and 5:00 or 6:00 each evening.

Traffic on Cohasset Road will be slow for the next three days to the lane closures, but there will not be major stoppages. Of more concern is the traffic from the sidestreets, especially Lassen Avenue. It is suggested drivers use detours if they need to cross Cohasset Road between East Avenue and Eaton Road during the next three days.

The project is being paid for through gas taxes as part of SB-1.

Earlier this week the sidewalks have been upgraded and better ramps have been added at intersections.
