Minor delays reported as tree trimming and maintenance continue along 299E
OAK RUN — Cal Trans officials have issued a caution for Intermountain area commuters and residents regarding one-way traffic control occurring along 299E.
The traffic control will remain in effect while crews “focus on tree removal, drainage system inspections, and erosion control” throughout the area, according to Cal Trans District 2; who say the cleanup and maintenance began in the area today, Tuesday, Feb 4, and is scheduled to continue through Friday.

As the project continues, some area motorists have reported minor delays, with some cautioning to leave a bit early to account for minor traffic backups caused by the crews and their large vehicles.
