North Red Bluff Rehabilitation Project Traveler Advisory
REDDING- Beginning, Wednesday, June 13, 2012, travelers on Interstate 5 between Bowman Road and Hooker Creek Road will use a median crossover detour not typically seen during construction projects. Northbound traffic lanes have been shifted to the right and the two southbound lanes will be separated at Bowman Road, with the “fast” lane crossing the median to run opposite of the northbound traffic, separated by a temporary concrete barrier rail. The “slow” lane will remain on the southbound side. All traffic that remains in the “fast” lane will be unable to change lanes or exit. Nightly, the “slow” lane will be closed and all exiting traffic will be detoured.
The detours are part of the $34.4 million North Red Bluff Rehabilitation project, which will replace 15 miles of Interstate 5 with a long life, 30 year pavement. Work on this project is being completed by Tullis, Inc. of Redding. The crossover detour will be used throughout the duration of the project, switching directions of travel and locations as work progresses. Please refer to the attached illustration for details of the detour.
Caltrans recommends the traveling public check the District 2 Roadwork Bulletin link at http://www.dot.ca.gov/dist2/roadinfo.htm, and review the Road Information Bulletin for the locations of ramp closures and dates and times. The project is anticipated to be complete by the fall of 2013.
