Expect more challenges getting on and off the Paradise Ridge over the next three weekends. Caltrans will be entirely closing a section of Clark Road, State Route 191, as construction work reaches a critical phase.
The roadway, connecting the unincorporated Butte Valley area with Paradise will be closed from south of Airport Road to just over a mile north of Durham-Pentz Road.
Caltrans is spending $29 million to remove curves, reduce steep grades and widen shoulders.
Traffic will be detoured beginning 11 p.m. Friday. The road is expected to reopen Monday morning at 6 a.m.
Similar closures are scheduled for the following two weekends.
