Aaron Osowski, The Park Record

Road widening and intersection improvements will begin on S.R. 248 starting Monday, June 17. The work is expected to be completed by Aug. 15 and construction hours will be Mondays through Fridays from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. with some Saturday work anticipated.

The project will seek to improve the intersection of Richardson Flat Road and S.R. 248 by adding turn lanes and installing the infrastructure for a future stoplight, according to a City Hall release. Additionally, the project will widen S.R. 248 to five lanes from Richardson Flat Road to Round Valley Drive with bicycle lanes.

Two-way travel will remain open on S.R. 248 at all times. The project will be suspended for the Fourth of July weekend (from Wednesday, July 3, at 3 p.m. to Monday, July 8, at 7 a.m.) and for Pioneer Day (Tuesday, July 23, at 3 p.m. to Thursday, July 25, at 6 a.m.).

The Quinn’s Junction/Rail Trail connector will have closures during the day from June 17 to July 8 with a detour at Richardson Flat Road. Some nighttime closures are expected.
