SUTTER COUNTY, CA (MPG) - Construction crews are scheduled to start work Monday, July 27, on a major pavement and streetscape project on State Route 99 in Live Oak.

Roadwork will take place in various stages from south of Pennington Road to north of Ramsdell Drive. Caltrans reminds residents that local businesses will be open during construction.

The $36 million project is funded in part by a $10 million federal Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grant and $2.3 million from Senate Bill 1 (SB 1), the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017.

“This is a very exciting project that benefits residents, visitors and regional commuters. The federal funding will go toward improving the streetscape to create a ‘main street’ environment,” said Caltrans Director Toks Omishakin.

“Without funding from SB 1, the pavement would continue to deteriorate, which would have a direct impact on travelers and result in costly maintenance repairs in the future,” Omishakin said. “This project allows crews to make long-term repairs, providing a smoother, safer ride for motorists and the region’s commercial operators.”

DeSilva Gates Construction is the contractor for this project, which calls for:

Upgrading the drainage systems; Rehabilitating the roadway to achieve a 40-year design life; Flattening the roadway cross slopes; Constructing new continuous sidewalks; Making traffic signal improvements at three intersections of Highway 99 at Pennington Road, Elm Street and Kola Street; Creating a pedestrian-focused downtown environment by enhancing parking and building access, wayfinding and signage, landscaping and facilities for bicyclists and pedestrians.

Motorists should expect travel-interfering work and pedestrian detours during construction. Completion is expected in fall 2021. For the latest updates and more information about this project, please visit www.LiveOak99.com

The construction schedule is subject to change due to traffic incidents, weather, availability of equipment and/or materials, and/or construction-related issues. More information and updates on projects can be found at Caltrans District 3, on Twitter via @CaltransDist3 or on Facebook at CaltransDistrict3. For real-time traffic, click on Caltrans’ QuickMap quickmap.dot.ca.gov/ or download the QuickMap app from the App Store or Google Play.

SB 1 provides an additional $5 billion each year in state and local funding to maintain and optimize California’s transportation system. SB 1 funds will enable Caltrans to fix more than 17,000 lane miles of pavement, 500 bridges and 55,000 culverts statewide by 2027.

Caltrans is committed to conducting its business in a fully transparent manner and detailing its progress to the public. For complete details on SB 1, visit www.rebuildingca.ca.gov.
