Caltrans striping project set to begin on Highway 20 in Nevada County

Submitted to The Union

Caltrans is alerting motorists to a State Route 20 striping project, which is scheduled to begin Tuesday, May 14 and continue through July 10.

The $1.3 million project has been awarded to Pave-Tech Inc. and stretches from the Yuba-Nevada County line near Smartsville and Mooney Flat Road to Pine Needle Lane east of Nevada City.

Work will consist of 6-inch-wide center and fog line striping, on- and off-ramp striping and the replacment of recessed pavement markers. This project is part of a statewide effort to restripe 50,000-plus lane miles of the state highway system with wider, brighter striping. The new striping will enhance safety for older drivers and truckers, and increase visibility in challenging conditions such as rain.

Motorists should anticipate intermittent lane and ramp closures at various locations, and traffic control daily for the duration of the project. No two consecutive ramps will be closed to provide detour opportunities for motorists.
