NAPA and SOLANO COUNTIES – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will implement ongoing paving work as part of the Highway 12 Jameson Canyon widening project in Napa and Solano Counties.
The paving will require approximately a 2-week period of morning lane reductions on eastbound Highway 12 between Kelly Road and Lynch Road in Napa County. Crews will reduce eastbound traffic on Highway 12 from two to one lane in the area.
The work is scheduled to start on Monday, December 2nd and be completed on Friday, December 13th. The lane reduction will be in effect from 7 a.m. until 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. All work is weather permitting. No work is scheduled on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 28th and Friday, November 29th.
The scope of construction may cause some motorists to travel at slower speeds during this phase of work.
However, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) and flaggers will help direct motorists. Caltrans will also install changeable message signs. Motorists should expect delays and allow for extra travel times.
