and All American Asphalt have
resumed the paving rehabilitation project on State Route 38. The endangered Southwestern Willow Fly Catcher was
nesting within the construction limits and delayed the project for five months

All American Asphalt is now working to
complete the project before the end of October. The project is moving uphill
from the passing lane to Rainbow Lane. Operations will then change direction
and pave downhill to the Santa Ana River Bridge below Angeles Oaks.
hours are Monday through Saturday, 8:00 A.M to 5:00 P.M., through October 24th.
One-way traffic control will be in effect for the project duration. The
location of work may vary by a small distance each day or change if affected by
rolled asphalt requires a rest period of
one to one and a half hours. There will be no access across the asphalt
during the rest period. Please relocate your vehicle as needed when the project
is in your area.
