The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) announces that U.S. 101 will be reduced to one northbound lane overnight from south of Padre Juan Canyon Road near Faria Beach to Punta Gorda near Mussel Shoals from Monday, March 28, to Saturday, April 2, for slab replacements. Motorists can expect delays.
- 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday (3/28) to Saturday (4/2): Northbound U.S. 101 reduced to one right lane from near Faria Beach to near Mussel Shoals. Multiple signs will be posted.
- Speed limit in the work zone is reduced to 55 miles per hour. Fines doubled for violations.
- Two southbound lanes of U.S. 101 will remain open in the work zone.
Residents and businesses located near the freeway may experience noise, vibrations and dust associated with construction activities. Closures may start and end later. Motorists can expect to see multiple work trucks, intermittent ramp closures 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 from Senate 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 and south of Santa Barbara.

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