Butterfly Lane Undercrossing Closed for Construction
The US 101 northbound off-ramp at Hermosillo Road will remain closed for the next two months as part of the US Highway 101 Butterfly Lane Pedestrian Undercrossing Project. This closure is necessary to allow for the relocation of ramp lighting and a pile driving operation which will occur for six days beginning Monday, Dec. 13. Travelers headed northbound may exit US 101 at Hot Springs Road.
A long-term 24/7 closure of the Butterfly Lane Pedestrian Undercrossing continues and will include reconstructing the stairs and adding new ramps for wheelchair and mobility scooter access at each end of the Undercrossing that are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The railroad crossing at the south side of the Undercrossing will include a new walkway, handrails and crossing arms with visual and audio signals.
Pedestrians and Cyclists are encouraged to use the Olive Mill Road Overcrossing as a detour during this construction project. Notices will be posted to advise all travelers about the temporary closure of this undercrossing.
The mural inside the Undercrossing will be maintained as part of this project. The contractor for this $3.7 million project is C.A. Rasmussen Inc. of Valencia, CA. This project is expected to be complete in the Summer of 2022.
