Motorists should be prepared for daytime travel delays through June on State Highway 162 west of Willows due to major pavement work, according to a press release from Caltrans. 

Crews began repaving an 11-mile stretch of Highway 162 from Airport Road to the Gopher Creek area of rural west Glenn County. 

Motorists can expect reversing one-way traffic control along two-mile segments of roadway and 15- to 20-minute travel delays until work is complete. 

Construction activity will occur from 6 a.m.-6 p.m. weekdays. Crews expect to finish the roadwork by the end of June. 

Knife River Construction of Chico is the contractor of the $4.3 million pavement project. 

The department will issue construction updates on Twitter at @CaltransDist3 and on Facebook at Caltrans District 3.
