SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY — A project to improve six miles of US Highway 101 from San Miguel to Camp Roberts will continue on Wednesday, May 30 with a traffic switch to allow for the reconstruction of southbound US Highway 101 from 10th Street to the intersection with San Marcos Road. Temporary striping will begin at 6:30 a.m. with the full traffic switch expected in the afternoon.
Motorists traveling southbound on US 101 will use the No. 1 (left) lane of northbound US 101 from 10th Street to the San Marcos Creek Bridge.
Motorists traveling northbound on US 101 will use the No. 2 (right) lane from the San Marcos Creek Bridge to 10th Street. This phase of construction is expected to last until late summer of this year.
The southbound on-ramp at South Mission Street remains closed for reconstruction until late summer of this year. Motorists may detour by using 10th Street, south to Cemetery Road before re-entering US 101 via the southbound on-ramp.
This project includes a realignment of US 101 to accommodate a new right hand 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’s scheduled to be complete in mid-2019. The public may learn more about these highway
