Highway 49 South closure occurs on Thursday

A Caltrans blasting operation will close Highway 49 South from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday.

The work will close the highway between Silva and Allred roads. The project is designed to widen and increase safety on the section of highway. A detour will be available during the closure period.

"It's a full closure, but crews may let motorists through at times," Caltrans spokeswoman Angela Deprato said.
