I-5 Willows rest areas in Glenn County closing for construction

GLENN COUNTY, Calif. — Caltrans is alerting motorists of an upcoming short-term closure of the north- and southbound Interstate 5 Willows safety roadside rest areas, or SRRAs, in Glenn County for construction.

Crews are scheduled to close the Willows Rest Areas starting at 7 a.m. Tuesday, July 5. The closure will continue through Aug. 31.

During the closures, northbound I-5 motorists will be directed to use the Corning SRRA in Tehama County (about 25 miles north of Willows). Southbound motorists will be directed to the Maxwell SRRA in Colusa County (about 24 miles south of Willows).

This $470,000 project will construct new sidewalks and ramps that meet current American with Disabilities Act standards and add new parking lot and crosswalk striping. TSI Engineering Inc. of North Highlands, Sacramento County, is the contractor for the project.

Weather, the availability of materials or unexpected events may delay or prolong the work. Caltrans advises motorists to “Be Work Zone Alert.”

The department will issue construction updates on Twitter @CaltransDist3 and on Facebook at CaltransDistrict3.
