Residents who commute along Bollinger Canyon Road can expect delays next week, as the road widening project reaches some high use areas near the future spot of the Bishop Ranch City Center.
Starting Sept. 18 and lasting through the 27th, road work along Bollinger Canyon Road near City Center Bishop Ranch will result in completely dark traffic signals. The city has hired a traffic control company to provide flaggers in an attempt to increase traffic flow and safety, but drivers should expect some slow-down in the area.
A complete list of the areas where the work will be done, and how long delays are expected to last, are as follows:
* Bollinger Canyon Road at Sunset Drive, Sept. 18, 9 a.m. to 11 p.m.
* Bollinger Canyon Road at Camino Ramon, Sept. 19, 9 a.m. to 11 p.m.
