The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is preparing a project to rehabilitate and restore a segment of pavement on State Route 99 (SR-99) between Delhi in Merced County and Turlock in Stanislaus County.

This project will replace the two outside lanes and shoulder, both northbound and southbound SR-99, from just north of the Bradbury Road overcrossing in Delhi to just north of the Stanislaus County line in Turlock.

The purpose of this project is to restore the facility, extend the service life of the pavement and to limit costly maintenance efforts for the future, both for motorists and the state of California.

This $17.5 million project has been awarded to Teichert Construction. Work is scheduled to begin on Monday, March 5, 2018, and to be completed by January 2019.

This work may include long-term lane and ramp closures, and work may be done during both day-time and night-time. No full highway closures are expected, and delays should not last longer than 10 minutes even during peak driving hours.

Due to Senate Bill 1, more projects like this one are under way and in the works across the state to improve roadways. Caltrans has begun construction on 14 maintenance projects worth $50 million and 11 projects have already been completed.

These pavement projects will extend the service life of our roadways. Our fix-it-first approach will help preserve California’s more than 50,000 lane miles of highways and roads.

Construction is scheduled to begin as listed, but is subject to change due to traffic incidents, weather, availability of equipment and/or materials and construction related issues.
