Motorists traveling north on Highway 70 into Marysville are advised to expect delays of up to 30 minutes beginning about 6 a.m. today due to major road construction.
Northbound motorists can expect lane restrictions and detours along Highway 70, or E Street, between Third and Fifth streets while crews work on the fourth segment of the 13-stage Marysville highway reconstruction project, according to a California Department of Transportation news release.
Over the next three weeks, construction will occur on the west side of E Street between Eighth and Sixth streets.
To accommodate the roadwork, E Street will be restricted to one-way traffic in the southbound direction between Eighth and Sixth streets.
At the same time, northbound motorists can expect delays of up to 30 minutes as they cross the E Street Bridge into Marysville. There will be only one northbound lane between Third and Fifth streets. Drivers will be required to turn either right or left at the intersection of Fifth and E streets.
Caltrans advises motorists to use alternate routes. Truckers also are urged to follow the alternate route for big rigs.
The roadwork is part of a $46.5 million Caltrans project that involves reconstructing major segments of Highways 70 and 20 with continuously reinforced concrete designed to last up to 40 years, officials said.
Updates on traffic alerts, detour routes and project information are available on the website MvForward.org.
