Highway 101 Lane Closures for Gaviota Rock Scaling Operation
Travelers on northbound US Highway 101 will encounter a closure of the No 2 (right) lane from the entrance to Gaviota State Park to one-mile north of the Gaviota Tunnel on Tuesday, May 10 through Thursday, May 12 from 8:30 am until 3:30 pm for a rock scaling and rock clearing operation to enhance public safety.
This roadwork will include dislodging loose rocks from the slopes above and clearing rocks from the rock net system adjacent to the northbound lanes.
Travelers can expect delays not to exceed 15 minutes. Electronic message boards will be activated informing everyone about this roadwork.
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.
