One-Way Traffic Control on Highway 9 Near Boulder Creek Continues this Week
Construction work on Highway 9 near Boulder Creek will result in one-way reversing traffic control 1.1 miles south of the intersection of Highway 9 and upper Highway 236 beginning Wednesday, July 28.
A 24/7 temporary signal to allow one-way reversing traffic control will be activated at 7 am on Wednesday, July, 28 and will be in place 24/7 until completion of the project, estimated to be in the summer of 2022.
In addition, K-rail will also be installed Wednesday, July 28 reducing the roadway to one lane. There will be a push button for bicyclists to activate the temporary traffic signal on each side.
Motorists can expect delays up to five minutes and should allow extra time during their commute.
The current 30-foot restriction for large trucks will be maintained in this construction zone. All other legal-sized vehicles will be able to proceed via traffic control.
