One lane will be closed for crews to perform rope rappelling and rock scaling. Periodically, crews will shut down both lanes for safety clearance when needed.
The work is scheduled or March 17 and March 18 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Motorists may experience delays, while lane closure signs will be posted.
The California Highway Patrol will be on site, and all work is weather permitting.
