FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Southbound Highway-29 near Rutherford
Caltrans Maintenance Work
Scheduled Starts in August
NAPA COUNTY – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is scheduled to remove approximately 15 trees along southbound Highway 29 just north of the Napa County town of Rutherford in early August. The trees are located on the shoulders adjacent to southbound Highway 29.
The trees have been identified as extensively decayed or dying, and could pose a potential hazard to passing motorists if not removed.
The major maintenance effort is scheduled to start during the month of August and will take approximately 2-3 weeks to complete.
Work will start each day Monday through Friday at 8:30 a.m. and conclude at 2 p.m. All work is weather permitting. Caltrans will notify the public once specific work days are confirmed.
To ensure worker and public safety during the work, occasional one-way traffic controls may be necessary.
During one-way traffic controls, flaggers will alternate traffic on northbound and southbound Highway 29. One lane will remain open at all times. However, motorists should allow for extra travel time and expect delays.
