Construction wrapping up in Marysville area

MARYSVILLE — Crews early today will wrap up around-the-clock construction on State Highways 20 and 70 in Marysville, just 14 months after breaking ground on the largest roadway reconstruction project in the city’s 163-year history.

The final section of the new concrete pavement on the eastern half of B Street (Highway 70) from 11th to 13th streets is scheduled to reopen to traffic by 6 a.m. today, the Department of Transportation (Caltrans) announced today. All truck and local street detour routes will end at the same time.

Over the next couple of months, most traffic-interfering roadwork will take place during the overnight hours as the contractor, Teichert Construction, prepares to complete the entire $46.5 million project in early fall — about one year ahead of schedule.

The remaining work includes:

— Installation of new curb and gutters on the west side of B Street, between 13th and 14th streets. Southbound motorists should expect the right hand, No. 2 lane, closed over the next week to accommodate this work.

— Asphalt paving on 12th Street (Highway 20) from B to Buchanan Street in east Marysville.

— Asphalt paving on B Street from 13th to about 16th Street.

— Repaving several city streets used as detour routes during construction, including sections of 14th Street and B Street.

— Landscaping, concrete grinding work, final highway striping and installation of a concrete median on E Street.

During the finishing work, community members and motorists can receive up-to-date traffic alerts and project information from http://www.MVforward. org.
