Closure of 101 Northbound Lanes
updated: Jul 05, 2012, 10:11 AM
The northbound lanes of US. Highway 101 near Gaviota State Park will be closed
24/7 for about 2-3 weeks, tentatively beginning on Tuesday evening, July 10, to
replace a drainage culvert under the highway. These emergency repairs are
necessary to prevent a more serious, long-term roadway failure and to maintain a
safe highway condition.
Motorists traveling northbound will be detoured onto southbound Hwy. 101 lanes.
The two southbound lanes will be reduced to one lane in each direction through
the Gaviota Pass area. Northbound and southbound two-way traffic will be
separated with channelizers from just south of Gaviota State Park at
Mariposa/Reina to the Hwy. 101/ Hwy. 1 Interchange.
Southbound traffic will be reduced down to one lane beginning at the Nojoqui
Both Gaviota Roadside Rest Areas will also be shut down, however Hwy. 101 will
remain OPEN during this traffic switch and all businesses in the surrounding
area will be accessible as well. Bicyclists will be able to travel through the
area in both directions.
