All construction activities will occur intermittently throughout the project area from June 4 to 8.
- Drill exploration is performed to obtain information on the soil and rock around a site in order to design structures.
- Electrical work will include installation of poles for various Caltrans and Sigalert traffic monitoring systems.
- AC paving is a process where a composite material commonly used to surface roads is placed.
- Striping operations will occur throughout the project area, in both directions of the freeway. This work is anticipated to take several weeks. Removal of the current lane striping will occur in some areas, followed by repainting of the stripes, creating new areas for crews to begin widening the freeway.
- Crews are expected to continue installing K-rail over the next few weeks. K-rail is a temporary concrete barrier used to separate lanes of traffic. Once the k-rail is in place, crews can safely work behind the barrier, which minimizes disruption of traffic.
