Major road construction projects are taking place in Fontana, city officials said.
The Sierra Avenue widening project in the northern area of the city began last month and will continue through October of 2023.
The project will widen Sierra from two lanes to three lanes in each direction, from Foothill Boulevard to Baseline Avenue.
At the present time, both northbound and southbound Sierra north of Foothill will be reduced to one lane in each direction due to the construction, which takes place from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays. Motorists are urged to avoid the area if possible.
