Groundbreaking today for a project to widen highway 46 between Shandon and Cholame.
Heidi Crawford of the Caltrans office says the work will widen a five mile stretch between the Shandon rest area to just east of the Jack Ranch Cafe’.
The cost is about $115 million.
When it’s completed, that stretch of 46 east will be a four lane expressway.
It will be completed by 2024.
Then, they’ll start work on the 46/41 interchange.
