BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - The Butte County Public Works Department will be fixing one of the busiest roads in south Chico - Hegan Lane, beginning on Monday.

The project limits are from the Union Pacific Railroad tracks westerly to Dayton road - a 2 mile stretch of road.

Construction begins at 7 a.m. and lasts until 5 p.m. every weekday.

Crews will be pulverizing the existing asphalt, adding in 3% to 5% of dry cement, watering, compacting, and then replacing of all the asphalt concrete surfacing.

This is all an effort to make the road smoother than usual.

Public works also want to improve the load carrying capacity of the road.

This project is funded by the Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Account (RMRA) funds.

Public works advise drivers to avoid the area if possible, because there will be 20-minute traffic delays with only one lane open during construction.

Memebers from public works say all work is being performed in strict conformance with State and Local COVID-19 social distancing rules and hand sanitization guidelines.

The project is set to be complete by June 12, 2020.
