Rumble Strips to Be Installed on 27 Miles of State Route 108

Sonora, CA...The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is preparing a highway improvement project that will add centerline and shoulder rumble strips to 27 miles of State Route 108 (SR-108) in Tuolumne county.




Work will be performed at the following locations:
• From the SR-49/SR-108 junction to Draper Mine Road, about 6 miles;
• A half-mile west of Twaine Harte Drive to Stoddard Springs, about 12 miles;
• From Heliport Road to a half-mile west of Herring Creek Road, about 9 miles;
Work is scheduled to start Sunday, April 14, 2019, with the project expected to finish in the
Summer of 2019. The work from the SR-49/SR-108 to Draper Mine Road will be done at night,
while work will be done during the day at the other two locations.

The night work will primarily be Sunday through Thursday, from 8:00 p.m. until 6:00 a.m. The
day work will primarily be 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Friday’s work will typically end at 3:00
p.m. so that the highway is clear for weekend visitors and tourists to the region.
One-way traffic control will be in effect and motorists should expect delays of 10 minutes.
Rumble strips are designed to alert drivers when their vehicles leave their traffic lane.
As tires pass over the rumble strips, drivers can hear the noise and feel the vibration
produced by these rumble strips. These strips are ground into the pavement surface.

For the safety of workers and other motorists, please Slow for the Cone Zone.

It would be nice if everyone would respect the lives of others and pay attention while driving. Since that is not going to happen and there are not enough law enforcement on the roads today. These rumble strips work and need to be cut into every road.

    No they don’t!! I drive truck and I see new skid marks every day. If someone is going off the road there going to go off the road regardless. I hate them and there too noisy when I’m inside my house. Save your money caltrans

      I have seen many young and old with their face in a phone careening towards me. As I am steering towards the side of the road to avoid them they hit the strips and correct themselves. Though not perfect they do help to get people to peel their faces out of a phone. They have a purpose and do at least help.

Leave it to an over educated engineer that has never worked one day in his life as the builder. Take a new road surface and dig holes to trap water and freeze. Then he never think about the people who pay the most road tax the truck drivers wide loads you have to hug the fog line. This is going to kill more people than it save. It would be so much cheaper to require the cell phone companies to turn off your phone when it travels at a certain speed!!!
