A $7.3 million road improvement project will begin Monday between Ski Run Boulevard and Wildwood Avenue, the California Department of Transportation announced Friday.

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.
