Shandon Rest Area re-opens
–The Shandon Roadside Rest Area re-opened to the public on Thursday, Nov. 9 by 5 p.m.
This closure which began in September was necessary to resurface the parking areas of this facility and perform roadwork related to the Highway 46 East widening project.
The contractor for this $47 million project to widen Hwy. 46 East from McMillan Canyon Road to Lucy Brown Road in Shandon is Brosamer & Wall of Walnut Creek CA. It is scheduled to be complete by the end of 2018. Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through highway construction zones.
