Nojoqui Bridge Rail Replacement
updated: Feb 15, 2013, 4:49 PM

Source: Caltrans


A project to replace the bridge rails on the Nojoqui Creek Bridge will result in a closure of the No. 1 (fast lane) in both directions of Hwy. 101 24/7 beginning Tuesday, February 19. These bridge railings were heavily damaged following a truck accident last year.

The No. 2 (slow lane) which re-opened following a five month closure will remain open during this phase of the project. The speed limit in this construction zone will be 45 mph and will be enforced by the CHP.

The contractor for this $1.5 million project is Granite Construction of Watsonville, CA. This project is expected to be completed this spring. Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through highway construction zones.

For traffic updates on other state highway projects in Santa Barbara County, motorists can call Caltrans District 5 Public Affairs at 805-568-0858 or visit the District 5 website at: http://www.dot.ca.gov/dist05/road_information.htm

This makes no sense. The lanes they are describing have been closed for a couple months at least.

In reality, it appears they are almost finished with the project and appear to be getting ready to repave the bridge and possibly open it up for both lanes in each direction.

Who wrote this garbage?

Still working on that? Seems like it's taking forever.

you sure they have replaced both bridge railings? I read this to say that they finished one side, now are set to work on the other. But I don't drive it every day.
