Work Continues at Highway 101/Turnpike Interchange

Expect lane closures as crews install sidewalk ramps and signals at the on/off ramps

A project to add eight American with Disabilities Act sidewalk ramps and new signals at the northbound and southbound on/off ramps continues at the Highway 101/Turnpike Road interchange.

Lane closures can be expected on southbound Turnpike Road from Calle Real to the Turnpike Overcrossing from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Sidewalks are open to pedestrians on the east side of Turnpike Road. The bicycle lane will not be accessible during these lane closures.

Road work on the west side of the overcrossing is expected to be completed by March 26, weather permitting, before work moves to the east side.

Motorists can expect delays of up to 10 minutes at the intersection of Turnpike Road/Calle Real.

The $428,000 project is expected to be completed this spring. 

All businesses in the area remain open and are accessible to the public.

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!
