Work is continuing on a project on Foresthill Road that will improve safety for motorists. The project contractor started work this week that will continue through Fri., March 29, 2013. The worksite is located at the intersection of Foresthill Road and Old Auburn Foresthill Road. The contractor will be improving a rough area of the roadway, making additional drainage improvements in the shoulder, and reconstructing the guardrail. After completing this phase, the contractor will return at a later date to complete the project after the temperatures remain warm.

The speed limit through the construction zone is 35 miles per hour. Drivers should be prepared to stop for flaggers.

The project is primarily funded by the Federal Highway Safety High Risk Rural Roads and the Federal Highway Safety Improvement Programs with local traffic fees matching funds as required.
