August 30, 2018 – County portions of Ridge Road between Rough and Ready Highway and Slate Creek Road and between Via Vista and Nevada City Highway will experience moderate delays for road rehabilitation and resurfacing beginning the week of September 4, 2018. Through traffic is strongly encouraged to use alternate routes to avoid the delays. Lane closures will be scheduled outside of Nevada Union school pickup and drop off hours to minimize impacts to school traffic.

Please observe all traffic control signs and the instructions of onsite personnel. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience.
