Highway 154 Passing Lane Closed Friday
Caltrans will begin highway repairs on State Route 154 (Post Mile 27.3) between San Antonio Creek Road and Painted Cave Road on Friday, Dec. 20 at 9 am with roadwork continuing through the winter months.
Construction will establish additional catchment for roadside ditches downslope of the Cave Fire burn scar, resulting in a temporary reduction of the westbound passing lane due to placement of k-rail (concrete barrier).
Electronic message signs will be posted to advise motorists who should experience only minor traffic delays.
The contractor for this $1.3 million emergency project is Granite Construction of Santa Barbara, CA.
Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through highway work zones.
