If Highway 70 is part of your commute, be aware, Caltrans has completed a new section of the highway on the west side as part of its widening project between Palermo and Ophir roads.

Drivers will be diverted to the new section starting Saturday, Sept. 14. This will allow Caltrans crews to get to work repaving existing lanes. Because of the detour, drivers will not be able to turn east onto Ophir until Tuesday, Sept. 24.

By the end of the fall, the one-mile section from Ophir to Palermo will be 5 lanes.

Caltrans will work to widen the highway from Palermo to Cox Lane next summer.
