Drainage Pipe Repair to Close Highway 135

The project is expected to last from Wednesday through the end of March

A project to repair Highway 135 south of the junction of Highways 1 and 135 between Orcutt and Los Alamos (at San Antonio Road) will begin Wednesday, weather permitting.

Caltrans will replace drainage pipe under the highway that collapsed in last month’s winter storms.

The roadwork will result in a full closure of Highway 135 in both directions until the project is completed by the end of March.

Southbound motorists may detour by using Highway 1 to San Antonio Road East. The southbound No. 1 (fast lane) on Highway 1 at San Antonio Road will be closed so motorists can turn left onto San Antonio Road. Northbound motorists are advised to use Highway 1 or Highway 101.

Electronic message boards and road signs will alert motorists of the closure.

Motorists also can call the automated California Highway Information Network at 800.GAS.ROAD for current conditions for any highway in the state.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
