Highway 101 Improvements Begin South of Santa Maria

Caltrans crews are working south of the Solomon Summit underpass to the Clark Avenue interchange

A project to widen the inside southbound shoulder, construct a rumble strip and improve drainage is under way on Highway 101 near Santa Maria from south of the Solomon Summit underpass to the Clark Avenue interchange.

Motorists will encounter lane closures in the southbound direction from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and during the overnight hours from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. There will be no lane closures scheduled during the morning and afternoon commute.

The Highway 101 Clark Avenue southbound on/off ramps may be closed intermittently during the project except for during the morning and afternoon commute.

Motorists can expect up to a 10-minute delay. The contractor for this $640,000 project is Granite Construction of Santa Maria. This project is expected to be completed in October.

Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through Caltrans construction zones.

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!
