Highway 101 Intermittent Full Closures in Gaviota Tuesday
Travelers on northbound US Highway 101 will encounter a closure of the No. 2 (right) lane from the Gaviota Roadside Rest area to the Interchange with Highway 1 north of the Gaviota Tunnel on Tuesday, Dec. 28 from 9:30 am until 1 pm for a rock scaling operation to enhance public safety, weather permitting.
In addition, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) will lead travelers to a full stop during these intermittent rolling highway closures not to exceed 15 minutes. These temporary full closures will allow Caltrans to remove dislodged rocks from the highway.
Electronic message boards will be activated informing everyone to be prepared to stop upon reaching this work zone.
This work will be performed by the Caltrans Maintenance team of Buellton and Caltrans Engineers from San Luis Obispo, CA.
Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through highway construction zones.
