While motorists driving between Crescent City and Trinidad faced four stops for construction Monday, Caltrans says most are routine and temporary, with no major work coming any time soon.
Heading south from Crescent City, the last stoplight has been removed from Mile marker 14.4 and the road is open to two-way traffic. Along with that, both lanes are now open uphill from Klamath but merge before mile marker 14.4.
Caltrans Public Information Officer Myles Cochrane says wall work on Last Chance grade will continue, but delays are expected to be no longer than five minutes at a time.
Guardrail work on the Klamath River Bridge will continue for an undetermined amount of time between 4 a.m. and 6 p.m., causing five-minute delays.
Farther down U.S. 101 into Humboldt County, drainage work at various locations began Monday and will close lanes and cause delays until complete.
Around the region, no large construction projects are expected, Cochrane said.
“There will be five-minute delays here and there,” he said, “But there isn’t anything significant coming up into this winter.”
