Davis-Sac bike route detour, CR32A closure Sept. 17-28

Due to road reconstruction, County Road 32A between CR 105 and the on/off ramps for westbound Interstate 80 will be closed to traffic from September 17 to September 28, 2012; to facilitate the Rehabilitation of CR 32A and Railroad Crossing Safety Improvement Project.  Detour signs will direct motorists and bicycles to alternate routes, through Mace Blvd. (CR 104) and Chiles Road (CR 32B).

This project will rehabilitate the damaged section of the road surface; it will also install guardrails at the intersection of CR 32A and the Union Pacific Railroad Crossing. The road closure will assist in the expeditious completion of the project.
