A $7.3 million road improvement project will begin Monday between Ski Run Boulevard and Wildwood Avenue, the California Department of Transportation announced Friday.
The half-mile project on U.S Highway 50 will allow for the collection and treatment of runoff and will add bike lanes, sidewalks and pedestrian lighting. Shoulders will be widened to 6 feet.
Construction through June 30 will occur primarily from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday and between 4 a.m. and noon on Fridays. Starting July 1, crews will work nights from 8 p.m. to 11 a.m.
According to the release, Caltrans hopes to have the project completed by the end of the 2013 construction season.
