Highway repair project continues in San Miguel
–A project to improve eight miles in both directions of US Highway 101 from north of Monterey Road to the San Marcos Creek Bridge in San Luis Obispo County to south of the East Garrison Overcrossing near Camp Roberts in Monterey County will continue on Monday, Oct. 30 with a traffic switch/lane closures in the following locations:
A traffic switch will result in the closure of the northbound No. 1 (left) lane of US Highway 101 from the off-ramp at South Mission Street to the 10th Street Overcrossing. In addition, the southbound No. 1 (left) lane of US Highway 101 will be closed at the 10th Street Overcrossing. These lane closures will be in effect 24/7 during this phase of the project.
Construction continues on the new San Marcos Creek Bridge with the installation of girders which began earlier this month. The concrete bridge deck is expected to be poured in mid-November.
This project includes a realignment of US 101 to accommodate a new southbound on-ramp at South Mission Street, paving US 101 and nearby ramps and lowering the profile of US 101 at Camp Roberts to achieve a minimum bridge clearance height. In addition, drainage systems, guardrail and lighting will be improved within this corridor.
The contractor for this $53 million project is Security Paving of Sylmar, CA. It is scheduled to be complete in 2019. The public may learn more about this project at the Caltrans District 5 Projects page.
