Motorists traveling in each direction of State Route 154 will encounter a detour on Tuesday, Jan. 2 from 9 am until 4 pm. Motorists headed towards Santa Barbara will detour from State Route 154 at Paradise Road before returning to the highway via Stagecoach Road.

Motorists headed towards Santa Ynez will detour from State Route 154 at Stagecoach Road before returning to the highway via Paradise Road.

This detour is necessary so that a vehicle can be lifted from an embankment following a recent motor vehicle accident.  Motorist delays should not exceed 10 minutes.

Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through highway work zones.

For traffic updates on other state highways in Santa Barbara County, motorists can call Caltrans District 5 Public Affairs at (805) 549-3318 or visit the District 5 website at: http://www.dot.ca.gov/dist05/road_information.htm

Well, Stagecoach worked back in the day when it was the only way to travel over San Marcos. I used to get carsick on the whole curvy San Marcos.

Instead of risking life and limb detouring on the dangerous old 154 stretch—especially the semis and other vehicles that are directed to the 154 by GPS—wouldn't it be a lot safer to just leave the ditched vehicle where it is? Maybe paint an orange X or something on it so no one wouldn't think it was a fresh wreck?

Oh boy, I'd hate to see a semi (or horse or even boat trailer) navigate the twisties just south of Coldsprings Tavern especially with traffic coming the other way.
