People traveling on Highway 193 either to or from Georgetown have, by now, run in to the roadwork that is taking place just north of Rock Creek Road.
According to Dennis Keaton, the public information officer for District 3 of Caltrans, the purpose of the roadwork is to put up a retaining wall, widen the road, and resurface it. Stoplights are positioned at either end of the section where the work is taking place to manage traffic on the two – now one – lane road.
Work started approximately a month ago and Keaton said they estimate it will be completed by mid November. Those traveling on the road should build in extra travel time due to the construction.
