If you are planning to drive down Hazel Avenue during the weekends of November 10-13 or November 17-20, please expect traffic delays. During these two weekends, a stretch of Hazel Avenue between Curragh Downs Drive and Sunset Avenue will be undergoing round-the-clock asphalt paving.
Weather permitting, the lane closures will begin on Friday, November 10 and 17 at 7 p.m. and will fully reopen at 6 a.m. on Monday, November 13 and 20, respectively. If work is delayed due to weather, the paving will be rescheduled for a future date.
This work is part of the Hazel Avenue Improvement Project
, helping to reduce congestion, increase safety and mobility for all modes of transportation along the two-mile stretch of Hazel Avenue between U.S. highway 50 and Madison Avenue. During Phase 2 of the project, roads will be reduced to one lane in both directions as crews conduct the asphalt work. The northbound and southbound lane closures will also impact bicycle traffic, but every effort will be made to provide access to riders. If you travel through the area, please be cognizant of these lane closures and the associated delays when planning your daily activities.
The anticipated completion of this second phase to widen Hazel Avenue is June of 2018. Sacramento County Department of Transportation
appreciates your patience and cooperation as crews work to finish this project. For your safety and workers safety, please be aware of crews if you travel through the project area.
