Highway 101 realignment project begins today 

–A project to improve eight miles in both directions of US Highway 101 from San Miguel to Camp Roberts in Monterey County will continue on Wednesday, April 11 with pothole repair in the following locations:

  • Motorists traveling southbound on US Highway 101 will be realigned onto a different section of the highway near the San Marcos Road intersection on Wednesday, April 11 and Thursday, April 12 from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m.
  • Motorists traveling northbound on US Highway 101 will be realigned onto a different section of the highway near the San Marcos Road intersection on Thursday, April 12 from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m.

 

Motorists can expect delays in this area from 15 to 30 minutes. Motorists should allow extra time while traveling in this area.

In addition, the northbound US Highway 101 left turn lane at San Marcos Road will be closed on Wednesday, April 11 and Thursday, April 12 from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m. Motorists may use Wellsona Road as a detour.

This project includes a realignment of US 101 to accommodate a new right side 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. Drainage systems, guardrail and lighting will also 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 mid-2019. The public may learn more about this project at the Caltrans District 5 Projects page: http://www.dot.ca.gov/dist05/projects/sanmiguel_rehab/index.htm
