Traffic on Ferrari Ranch Road east of Highway 65 will be subject to detours, starting today and continuing for at least three weeks, as Caltrans works to set up falsework connected with the Lincoln bypass project.

Flaggers will direct drivers where Ferrari Ranch Road intersects Groveland Lane and Caledon Circle, according to a Caltrans press release.

Work is expected to continue for three weeks, unless unexpected weather prolongs it, according to the press release.

Flaggers will continue to direct traffic through the duration of construction, said Kari Ehrman, a spokeswoman for Caltrans.

"We're hoping that maybe we can get it done in two weeks," Ehrman said.

During construction, Groveland Lane will be closed between Club Lincoln and Ferrari Ranch Road, and drivers on Joiner Parkway can access businesses such as Home Depot and Target by turning onto Ferrari Ranch Road instead of Groveland Lane.

The work is part of the 11.7-mile, $325 million rerouting of Highway 65 around Lincoln, taking off at Lincoln Crossing and rejoining the current route at Sheridan.
