CHICO, Calif. - The night time commute is about to get ramped up a little more in Chico.

In less than two weeks ramps and lanes on Highway 99 will be closed.

Caltrans said statewide they're transitioning to wider stripes which means the white and yellow lines you see on the pavement will grow from 4 to 6 inches and appear a lot brighter.

Caltrans is going to be restriping the highway starting in Sutter County and work their way north to the Tehama County line.

People in the Butte County area should expect to see lane closures and going both north and southbound from May 20 through June 13. 

Caltrans said not to worry because they're only working on one ramp at a time and the time frame of work will be 6 p.m. to 6 a.m.
