The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) announced a roadway striping project beginning Wednesday, April 3, that will result in one-way traffic control and lane closures on several portions of State Route 41 in Kings, Fresno and Madera Counties.
On-ramps and off-ramps along the corridor will also be affected during the project. In an effort to minimize impact to traffic, all work on this project will be performed overnight.
The following will take place from Wednesday, April 3 until Wednesday, June 5, Sunday through Thursday from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m.:
- One-way traffic control on sections of SR-41 from Interstate 5 to Standard Oil Avenue in Kettleman City.
- One-way traffic control on sections of SR-41 from the Kings County/Fresno County line to just north of Elkhorn Avenue in Fresno County.
- Lane closures on sections of SR-41 from just north of Elkhorn Avenue in Fresno County to state Route 145 in Madera County.
- Northbound and southbound SR-41 on-ramps and off-ramps may be intermittently closed when operations are in the area. No two consecutive on-ramps or off-ramps will be closed at the same time.
Motorists are reminded to obey flagging personnel and pay close attention to construction vehicles in the work zone.
Lane closures may continue for longer periods of time if necessary, due to delays caused by weather or uncontrollable events that may occur during construction.
Motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes if possible, and to #BeWorkZoneAlert.
