Freeway Rehab Project Begins North Of Redding

A major freeway project begins Tuesday in Southern Siskiyou County. Cal-Trans and JF Shea are starting a 24 Million Dollar pavement rehab, which involves removing and replacing the existing asphalt, rebuilding guardrails, and replacing overhead signs, as well as drainage and electrical work. The Interstate Five project stretches from the Truck Village to Central Weed. In the first phase traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction, along with ramp closures with detours.  30 minute delays are possible during peak travel times. The job will continue through October of next year. Updates are available by calling 225-3452.
