How to get around the road closures and road tests in California (Part 2)
A series of road closures in California will take place from Tuesday until Friday, as part of a new California Road Test.
The state has been testing vehicles on its new road infrastructure, which is being called the “Road Safety and Infrastructure Program.”
The road closures will also include the following road tests: A temporary “bump-and-run” stop on the A5 at Highway 101 and Interstate 80.
A temporary road closure on the 101 Freeway.
A road closure in San Joaquin County and on the San Joquin Chain of Lakes Road.
A two-hour closure on Highway 80 near the junction of the California River Highway and the California State Highway System (CSHS).
The first round of road tests, scheduled to take place in early April, will include two road closures on Highway 101 in San Jose and one road closure near the California Border near the Los Angeles International Airport.
The California Highway Patrol said that all of the road tests will take an average of three hours to complete.
The tests will be held on public roads and on private roads, the CHP said.
Drivers who want to use the road for the tests should call 888-HIGHWAY-GOOD, or visit the California Highway Safety website.
There will be no refunds on the road test, although some drivers may be offered free repairs and/or insurance.
The new road tests have been in the works since October, but have yet to be implemented, as the state has not been able to secure enough private contractors to complete the work, according to the CHS.
Road testing in the US is a relatively new phenomenon, with the first testing taking place in the mid-1970s and the first in the late 1990s.
During the height of the Great Recession, the number of road crashes jumped in the U.S., but traffic deaths and serious injuries fell.
