Caltrans Completes Highway 1 Pavement Project Near Lompoc

Protective coating was applied to 25 lane miles

Caltrans District 5 announced on Monday the completion of a $1.9 million pavement protection project on Highway 1 near Lompoc.

The project was primarily financed ($1.6 million) by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

“With the help of Recovery Act funds, we are repairing our highways and local roadways at a more rapid pace and providing a smoother, safer commute for motorists,” Caltrans Director Cindy McKim said.

The project applied a protective coating to 25 lane miles of pavement on Highway 1 near Lompoc from Harris Grade Road to California Boulevard.

Taking action now while the pavement is still in fairly good condition instead of waiting until it deteriorates saves the state thousands of dollars.

California has allocated nearly $2.6 billion in Recovery Act funding to nearly 1,000 highway, local street, and job training transportation projects statewide.

— Jim Shivers is a public information officer for Caltrans District 5.

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!
