Highway 101 repair project in Atascadero continues with overnight closures
–A project to replace concrete pavement at five locations on Highway 101 between Santa Rosa Road and Traffic Way in Atascadero started Monday night and is continuing during the overnight hours through Friday morning April 23.
These full closures will occur in both directions of Highway 101 from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. Motorists will detour from northbound Highway 101 at the Santa Rosa Road off-ramp or at the Hwy. 58 off-ramp and travel between El Camino Real/Hwy. 58 through Santa Margarita to reach US 101 and the reverse for southbound traffic.
Motorists can expect traffic delays not to exceed 10 minutes. Electronic message boards and detour signs have been posted to inform the public about this roadwork.
The contractor for this $9 million project is Guy Atkinson of Irvine, Calif. This project is scheduled to be complete by the end of next month.
