Stanislaus County public works employees will block off one lane of traffic on western Del Puerto Canyon Road for a couple of days next week as they repave the worn-out street.

Workers are scheduled to conduct the minor overlay project on Wednesday and Thursday, April 24 and 25, near the road’s 19-mile marker about a mile west of Adobe Canyon, according to Brian England, a road supervisor for the Stanislaus County Public Works Department. The stretch of road stands about 20 miles southwest of Patterson.

“We call it the narrows,” England said of the area. “It’s real narrow and high in there.”

The road has suffered major erosion because of winter weather, England said. Road workers will lay about 100 to 200 tons of asphalt each day of the project.

England encouraged those who can avoid driving through that area to do so at that time, though he added that may be impossible for nearby residents.

“If you live up there, you probably can’t avoid it,” he said.

I'm wondering how they are going to tell the good part from the bad part?
