Caltrans and its contractor, Skanska, of Los Angeles, Calif. will begin work today on an emergency project on Highwayt 74 near the Cranston Fire Station. This is the “bump” site.

The work will take place from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and continue through this weekend during the same hours and will continue next week.

The $750,000 emergency project is needed to stabilize the slope, which was undermined during the recent rain event. The project includes excavation, structure back fill, debris removal, removing and replacing existing pavement, slope stabilization and installation of a perforated under drain.

Reversible, one-way traffic control will be in effect during the work hours. Please follow all posted construction signs, as well as the instructions of flaggers on-site.
