Grinding, paving work on Highway 89 from Squaw Valley to Truckee

A section of State Highway 89 from Squaw Valley to Truckee will be getting a new surface as grinding and paving work begins on Sunday evening, Sept. 10.

“Motorists can expect delays of up to 20 minutes when the work starts tonight at 8 p.m. and goes around the clock until noon Friday (Sept. 15). All the work is expected to be complete by the end of the construction season next month,” the California Department of Transportation said in a statement.
