One Day Closure of Highway 1
Highway 1 will be closed to thru traffic between Jalama Road and Santa Rosa Road near Lompoc on Wednesday, August 14 from 9 am until 6 pm.
Motorists traveling in both directions will detour by using State Route 246. Highway 1 will remain open for local traffic between the US 101/State Route Interchange and Jalama Road with access maintained to Jalama Beach County Park.
This closure is necessary for the installation of a bridge girder as part of the Salipuedes Creek Bridge Replacement Project which includes a retaining wall and fish passage.
A traffic signal is in operation 24/7 through May of 2020 exclusive of these full closures and will maintain one-way reversing traffic control with the width of each lane reduced from 12 to 11 ½ feet. Larger vehicles should be aware of this lane reduction.
The contractor for this $5 million project is CalPortland Construction of Santa Maria, CA. This project is expected to be complete in Summer 2021.
Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through highway work zones.
