The purpose of this project is to improve traffic operations and reduce congestions within freeway interchanges between 180, 41 and 168.
Construction officially began back in June.
Traffic may be flowing smoothly now, but Caltrans says you can expect major delays on these roadways within the next several months.
All of it is necessary in order to complete the $49 million Braided Ramp Project.
Caltrans says expect major traffic delays on the roadways until the project is complete, which should be in the fall.
Drivers using the freeways also need to be aware that CHP will be monitoring the area to make sure all drivers are slowing in the construction zone.
Freeway ramps will be closed between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Monday, January 7th through Thursday, January 10th, while crews install concrete K-kail barriers. When the ramps open on Sunday, drivers need to be aware of changes to the lanes, including the current 5 lane area to be reduced to 4.
