Hidden Valley Lake turn lane project on hold

HIDDEN VALLEY LAKE – A project to add a left-hand turn lane on Highway 29 leading into Hidden Valley Lake has hit a snag, with paving problems causing it to be temporarily suspended.


The Caltrans turn lane project is meant to increase the safety in the area, where accidents have been known to happen.


Contractor Argonaut Construction of Santa Rosa began work on the project April 21, according to a Caltrans road bulletin.


But earlier this month work stopped, said Caltrans spokesman Phil Frisbie.


“We've widened the road and paved, but the project got put on hold,” said Frisbie.


That's because the new pavement didn't turn out correctly, said Frisbie, which will require Argonaut to repave it.


However, once the pavement is redone, the roadway will be striped and the turn lane completed, Frisbie said.


“We're expecting it to be done soon,” he said. “We don't have an exact time frame.”
