Ortega Highway Delays This Week

CalTrans issued an advisory today stating that beginning tomorrow through Friday, they'll be laying down new asphalt along the construction areas of Ortega Highway (SR74), during daylight hours.

Because of this, traffic along the one-lane stretch of road will move even more slowly.

They said they have to do this during daylight hours because asphalt can't cure properly in freezing temperatures.

If you currently commute along Ortega Highway, you might want to take the 91 instead.


  1. I do not like this road anyway.
