The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) announces that U.S. 101 will be reduced to one southbound bypass lane from Mussel Shoals to Faria Beach from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. beginning Monday, June 20, to early Saturday, June 25, to clean debris, add signs and move heavy equipment on the closed southbound lane on coastal side. Two northbound lanes will remain open in the work zone of U.S. 101, which connects Ventura and Santa Barbara.

As part of the lane closure, there will be no access to southbound U.S. 101 off- and on-ramps at Seacliff during the overnight hours. The southbound bypass lane also has no exits from Mussel Shoals to Faria Beach. 

Residents and businesses located near the freeway may experience noise, vibrations and dust associated with construction activities. Signs will be posted. Closures may start and end later. Motorists should expect delays and high-intensity lights. Real-time traffic information can be found at http://quickmap.dot.ca.gov/.

All work is subject to change due to weather or construction-related issues. The work is part a $48 million pavement rehabilitation project — including $5.5 million in funding fromSenate Bill 1 (SB 1), the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017 — on a 4.3-mile section of U.S. 101 north of Ventura. The project will smooth the roadway and extend the highway life by as many as 40 years. Road shoulders, guardrails, retaining walls and concrete barriers are also being upgraded by this project.

Caltrans reminds drivers to “Be Work Zone Alert” and to “Slow for the Cone Zone.”

Highway 101 Reduced to One Lane Overnight Next Week

Do the powers that be not realize that people actually live here? If they do, then clearly they don't care.
The entire community of La Conchita has to drive an extra 19 miles just to get home. The communities of Seacliff and Faria are also impacted by these closures, as are the tens of thousands of people that drive through the poorly thought out and unsafe gauntlet. Despite the announced times of closure, the on and off ramps at Seacliff are open at random times. Should we be thankful for this, or outraged that it's so poorly planned that they aren't using the allocated time? This all started a year ago, is slated to go on for more than another year, and it still just barely making any progress.

The increased number of accidents in the area is off the charts, and whenever one happens the traffic is greatly impacted. How much fuel and time of the general public is wasted because of this (and I'll say it again) poorly planned project?
