Changes to Caltrans Road Work Projects

Caltrans has altered the road work schedule for its paving project along I-10, the Highway 86 Expressway and Highway 111. The construction was initially set to last throughout the morning rush hour, but Caltrans has changed the timing so the work is now taking place in the evening.

Road work will now take place on these highways from 3 p.m. to 4 a.m. Sunday through Friday. This should help to alleviate the project’s impact to morning commuters. The road work is set to be complete sometime in early December.

Until mid-November, Caltrans will be working on paving on eastbound I-10 from Jackson Street to Highway 86. After that, they will move to working on westbound I-10.

What is the Caltrans Paving Project?

This road work is part of rehabilitation project to repair about 150 lane miles. Its funding comes from the Road Repair and Accountability Act—often referred to as the gas tax—which is actually up for appeal on the Nov. 6 ballot. Proposition 6 suggests that the gas tax is a burden to low-income residents, as it adds 12 cents of tax per gallon of gas, as well as increased vehicle registration fees.

“Thankfully, this change in the road work schedule should help alleviate some morning traffic. As always, drive cautiously any time you are traveling through a highway work zone,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
