Crews are scheduled to close the Willows Rest Areas starting at 7 AM on Monday, Jan. 18. The closure will continue through December 31.
At the same time, Caltrans is reminding motorists that the closure of the neighboring north- and southbound Maxwell Rest Areas in Colusa County has been extended to March 31, for additional construction activity.
These rest areas are located off Interstate 5 between the cities of Orland in Glenn County and Williams in Colusa County.
During the closures, northbound I-5 motorists will be directed to use the Corning SRRA in Tehama County (about 25 miles north of Willows). Southbound motorists will be directed to the Dunnigan SRRA in Yolo County (about 34 miles south of Maxwell).
Caltrans is investing $13.8 million to update the wastewater and water systems at the Maxwell and Willow rest areas. TSI Engineering Inc. of North Highlands, Sacramento County, is the contractor for both projects.♣
