SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY – Caltrans will continue work on a project to construct a viaduct and retaining wall on Highway 1 between the San Carpoforo Creek Bridge and Ragged Point with full overnight closures beginning next week to allow for drilling.
These full overnight highway closures will begin Sunday, Sept. 29 from 9 pm until 5 am and continue through Friday morning October 4.
A 24/7 traffic signal is expected to be installed the week of October 6 with roadwork scheduled Monday through Thursday with traffic control from 7 am until 4 pm and from 7 am until 2 pm on Fridays. This signal will allow traffic to move in each direction until project completion. Electronic message boards will be posted to alert the public.
The contractor for this $4.1 million project is Souza Engineering of San Luis Obispo, CA. It’s scheduled to be complete by Spring of 2020.
Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through highway construction zones.
