Highway 1 retaining wall project now underway 

Retaining wall project

Project now underway near the San Luis Obispo/Monterey County Line

A project to construct a retaining wall on Highway 1 in northern San Luis Obispo/southern Monterey counties is now under way, Caltrans reports.

Caltrans said that the retaining wall is expected to serve as a permanent restoration effort in this area known for major slides.

Full overnight closures on State Route 1 from Gorda to Ragged Point are expected to begin in mid-May through mid-September, Sunday night through Friday morning from 9 p.m. until 6 a.m.

Motorists traveling north/south of these closures are advised to reach their destinations before 9 p.m. Access will be maintained for local residents and all businesses along the coast will remain open during the roadwork, according to Caltrans.

Caltrans reports that motorists can expect one-way reversing traffic control via a temporary traffic signal Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m. with delays not expected to exceed ten minutes.

Electronic Message Boards will be activated on US Highway 101 in Paso Robles and Hwy. 1 in Carmel and Cambria to inform motorists of these highway closures. All local businesses will remain open during this project.

This contractor for this $9.5 million dollar project is Madonna Construction of San Luis Obispo, and is expected to be completed in 2017, Caltrans reports.
