A project to realign Cathedral Oaks Road with Hollister Avenue and replace the Highway 101 overcrossing at Hollister Avenue will result in a full closure of Highway 101 on Tuesday, Nov. 9 at Winchester Canyon Road for the installation of scaffolding.

Northbound Highway 101 will be closed from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. Motorists will exit Highway 101 at the Winchester Canyon Road off-ramp and detour to Calle Real before reaching the northbound on-ramp at the existing Hollister overcrossing.

Southbound Highway 101 will be closed from 1 a.m. to 4 a.m.  Motorists will exit Highway 101 at the Winchester/Hollister off-ramp before returning to Highway 101 via the temporary southbound on-ramp.

Electronic message boards and flaggers will help motorists travel through the project area.

The contractor for the $7 million project is Shasta Constructors Inc. of Redding. The project is expected to be completed in May 2011, weather permitting.
