The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has issued an alert for motorists and recreational water users that work remains under way along a 2.9-mile segment of the Route 99, a six-lane widening project in both Fresno and Madera counties.

This $68 million project includes the addition of two new lanes within the median along SR 99 from just south of Grantland Avenue in Fresno to just north of Avenue 7 in Madera County.

The existing San Joaquin River (SJR) bridges will be replaced and shifted to the west.

This project is anticipated to be completed in summer 2016...
