Paving begins on Highway 29 near Lakeport Wednesday

LAKEPORT – Caltrans reported that an emergency paving project on Highway 29 from just north of the junction of Highway 29 and 175 in Lakeport to just south of Mockingbird Lane will begin on Wednesday, July 21.


The top layer of deteriorating asphalt will be removed and replaced with a layer of rubberized asphalt which includes ground up rubber from used automobile tires, officials reported.


This project will use 405 tons of recycled rubber, enough to keep the equivalent of 62,000 passenger car tires from ending up in landfills. Caltrans reported that rubberized asphalt is more flexible than conventional asphalt, and has been shown to last longer.


The agency anticipated that paving will be completed by Aug. 13.


Work hours are 4 a.m. to 4 p.m., weekdays. Caltrans reported that traffic will be restricted to one lane in each direction of travel. Motorists may experience minor traffic slowdowns.


On Wednesday, July 21, the southbound offramp to 11th Street (Exit 103) will be closed from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., the agency reported.


Beginning Monday, July 26, ramps at Lakeport Boulevard (Exit 102), 11th Street, Park Way (Exit 106) and Nice-Lucerne Cutoff Road (Exit 108) will be intermittently closed. Caltrans said no more than one onramp and offramp will be closed at a time.
