Traffic Delays on the Horizon for Highway 89

SIERRA COUNTY – Caltrans is alerting Sierra County residents of the start of pavement rehabilitation project on State Route 89 between Sattley and Sierraville.

Beginning Monday, July 18, construction crews will begin work to repave a five-mile segment of the rural highway at the south end of the Sierra Valley. Motorists should expect reversing, one-way traffic control between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, with occasional weekend work if needed.

The work is part of a $3 million project to smooth and repave State Route 89 from just south of Wilson Lane near Sierraville to just north of Meadow Lane near Sattley.

Hat Creek Construction & Materials, Inc. of Burney is the prime contractor for the project, which is scheduled to be completed in August 2022. The construction schedule is subject to change based on weather, equipment availability or other unexpected events.
