The California Department of Transportation reports that motorists should prepare for temporary daytime closures of the northbound and southbound Interstate 5 Willows Rest Areas in Glenn County.
Crews will be alternately closing the southbound and northbound rest areas from 6:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. through Friday, October 30. Portable roadside message signs will display updates about the closure locations and dates.
Pacific Gas & Electric will be shutting off electricity to the facilities so that crews can perform tree work around the power lines. The work will allow the utility company to install a power pole to serve newly installed electric vehicle charging stations at the rest areas.
Motorists are reminded the northbound and southbound Maxwell Rest Areas in Colusa County are closed for construction. For northbound travelers, the next open rest area is the Herbert Miles Rest Area just north of Red Bluff. For southbound motorists, the next open rest area is in Dunnigan, Yolo County.
Weather or unexpected events may delay or prolong the work.
