Mono Way widening: Full road closure looms

Mono Way widening work continues this week, and city officials are informing drivers that a full, two-week closure starting Monday will complicate travel on the busy road.

According to the City of Sonora, a short stretch of Mono Way will be shut down from July 28 through Aug. 8 while crews replace a culvert that allows drainage under the road. The closure will occur between Roselyn Lane and Rogers Road, with no through traffic allowed until the culvert is completed.

“This is a two-week shutdown, day and night, of Mono Way,” City Engineer Gerard Fuccillo said.

Drivers will still be able to access the businesses and residences on Mono Way during the closure from either side of the culvert. 

Fuccillo said the work so far on Mono Way has gone “very well” since it kicked off in June. Grading, excavation, sidewalk and retaining-wall construction will continue this week at various points between Greenley Road and Fir Drive. 

The culvert replacement will likely be the biggest disruption for traffic during the widening project. The complete closure is required because the replacement calls for digging a significant trench across the entire road, which can’t be done incrementally, Fuccillo said.

When completed, the $3.7 million project funded by Tuolumne County and City of Sonora will broaden Mono Way from Greenley Road to Fir Drive.
