updated: Jan 07, 2014, 10:15 AM
A project to construct a roundabout and improve safety at State Routes 154 and 246 near Santa Ynez is
Beginning Wednesday, Jan. 8 motorists and bicyclists will share the road within the project area due to the
closure of the shoulder during this phase of construction.
Motorists will encounter intermittent one-way reversing traffic control and lane closures during the various
stages of the project Monday through Friday during the overnight hours from 7:30 pm to 5:30 am and
during the daytime from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Motorists can expect delays not to exceed ten minutes.
A stop sign will be placed in both directions of State Route 154 at State Route 246. The speed limit in this
construction area will be reduced to 25 mph. Most of this work will take place behind a protective barrier
resulting in minimal lane closures.
The contractor for this $3.3 million dollar project is Granite Construction of Watsonville, CA. This project is
expected to be completed in October of 2014.
