LINCOLN, CA - Caltrans alerts of a detour for a stretch of southbound Highway 65 in Placer County.
Starting Saturday, June 25, southbound Highway 65 traffic will be detoured under the Industrial Avenue Bridge at Sterling Parkway in Lincoln and then back to the highway. Northbound traffic will stay on Highway 65 for three or four more weeks.
Caltrans spokesman Mark Dinger says because of a sharp curve on the detour, the speed limit will be posted at 20 miles per hour for that portion.
Beginning Friday night at 10 p.m. there will be lane closures along Highway 65 in the Lincoln area to place concrete barriers and paint traffic stripes. Dinger said one lane in each direction will be open at all times.
The Highway 65 - Lincoln bypass 11.7 mile project is expected to be completed in 2012 at a cost of $325 million.
