Highway 193 work begins
The state Department of Transportation alerts motorists of occasional traffic delays on Highway 193 between Newcastle and Lincoln in Placer County as construction work begins on an upcoming road realignment project. According to Caltrans, one-way traffic controls will begin Wednesday between Clark Tunnel Road and Hidden Acres Lane. Work will continue into March to clear the project area and remove opportunities for bird nesting so that birds will not be disturbed when construction fully begins later this spring. Changeable message signs alerting motorists, particularly truck traffic, to the delays will be placed at the Interstate 80 and Highway 65 interchange, on Highway 193 east of Lincoln before Sierra College Boulevard and at the Highway 193 and Interstate 80 junction. Caltrans says motorists should expect travel delays and, when possible, use alternate routes.
