Anza – Beginning next Monday, July 11, the California Department of Transportation will start working on a left turn lane project on a section of State Route Hwy 371. The project will be affecting the section of roadway along SR 371 two-tenths of one mile west of Bahrman Road and just west of Bailiff Road in the unincorporated community of Anza.
The $520,000 project, which was awarded to All American Asphalt, is expected to end by the beginning of September 2016.
All American Asphalt will begin clearing and grubbing on Monday, July 11 and is expected to continue until July 15. During clearing and grubbing, Caltrans workers focus on the preservation of public and private property and pay special attention to environmentally sensitive areas.
The project will be constructing left turn lanes for both directions of travel on SR-371 and also be digging to allow access for underground utilities.
There will be flaggers in effect from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day, allowing for reversible traffic control.
To stay informed about road work and construction projects in the Inland Empire go to the Caltrans website where you can sign up for commuter alerts. You can also view minute by minute traffic conditions at the Department of Transportation’s website.
The Anza Valley Municipal Advisory Council is working with Caltrans to have a Town Hall meeting soon at the Anza Community Hall. Watch for a future announcement about that meeting on Anza Valley Outlook online and on Facebook for details related to that upcoming meeting.
