STATE ROUTE 154/246 ROUNDABOUT PROJECT TRAFFIC SWITCH/DETOUR
A project to construct a roundabout and improve safety at State Routes 154 and 246 near Santa Ynez will
result in a temporary traffic switch on Wednesday, April 9, weather permitting. This road work was
scheduled to begin today but has been postponed due to wet conditions as a result of rain in the area.
Motorists traveling in both directions of State Route's 154 and 246 will detour through the partially
completed roundabout. The speed limit will be 25 mph and include a three-way stop. Motorists and
bicyclists are encouraged to share the road.
Armour Ranch Road will be closed during this phase of the project. Motorists may detour onto Happy
Canyon Road and proceed to State Route 154 near Edison Street. These detours are expected to be in
effect until August.
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.
Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through highway work zones.
