A project to re-align the northbound lanes and straighten a curve along US
Highway 101 from north of Mariposa Reina to south of the Gaviota State
Roadside Rest Area will begin on Monday, April 18, Caltrans officials have
For the duration of this project, motorists going northbound on US Highway 101
will be unable to turn left onto Gaviota Beach Road to access Gaviota State
Park and the Hollister Ranch or turn left onto northbound US Highway 101 from
Gaviota Beach Road. Northbound motorists may detour at the State Route 1
Interchange north of the tunnel before returning southbound.
Motorists will encounter narrow lanes within the project area 24/7 until
September due to concrete barriers to protect highway workers and ensure the
safety of all travelers.
Electronic message boards will be activated to inform motorists with delays
not to exceed ten minutes. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) will be present
to ensure a safe environment for everyone.
The contractor for this $6.6 million dollar project is Souza Construction of
San Luis Obispo, CA.
This project is expected to completed in December, weather permitting.
Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through
highway construction zones.
