A project to replace the Salsipuedes Creek Bridge and construct a retaining wall and fish passage on Highway 1 near Lompoc continues this week with a traffic switch onto the newly constructed southbound bridge on Wednesday, Jan. 22.
 
The 24/7 traffic signal will be temporarily turned off during this traffic switch.  Motorists will encounter traffic control via a pilot car and flaggers from 9 am until 3 pm.  When the traffic switch is complete, the traffic signal will be restored allowing two-way traffic on the southbound bridge and construction to begin on the northbound bridge.
 
The width of each lane during construction has been reduced to 11 ½ feet without shoulders. Oversized vehicles must use an alternate route during this project.
 
The contractor for this $5 million project is CalPortland Construction of Santa Maria, CA.  This project is expected to be complete by the end of this year.
