Traffic Switch for Nojoqui Bridge Rail Replacement on U.S. Highway 101 Begins Next Week

A project to replace the bridge rails on the Nojoqui Creek Bridge will result in a closure of the No. 1 (fast lane) in both directions of Hwy. 101 24/7 beginning Tuesday, February 19.


These bridge railings were heavily damaged following a truck accident last year.

The No. 2 (slow lane) which re-opened following a five month closure will remain open during this phase of the project. The speed limit in this construction zone will be 45 mph and will be enforced by the CHP.

The contractor for this $1.5 million project is Granite Construction of Watsonville, CA. This project is expected to be completed this spring.

Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through highway construction zones.

For traffic updates on other state highway projects in Santa Barbara County, motorists can call Caltrans District 5 Public Affairs at 805-568-0858 or visit the District 5 website.
