Salsipuedes Creek Bridge Starts February
A project to replace the Salsipuedes Creek Bridge and construct a retaining wall and fish passage on Highway 1 near Lompoc will begin on Monday, February 11. Motorists will encounter one-way reversing traffic control with a temporary signal which will be in operation 24 hours a day.
In preparation for this project, motorists will encounter lane closures within the project area on Hwy. 1 between Santa Rosa Road and Jalama Road today through Friday, Feb. 8 from 8 am until 4 pm. Motorists can expect delays not to exceed 15 minutes.
The contractor for this $5 million project is CalPortland Construction of Santa Maria, CA. This project is expected to be complete in June of 2021.
Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through highway work zones.
