Highway 101 Paving Project Enters Next Phase

With repairs complete, crews will begin repaving 8.5 miles from Milpas Street to Patterson Avenue

Caltrans has completed the repair phase of 8.5 miles of Highway 101 from Milpas Street to Patterson Avenue and will begin work to repave all traffic lanes with asphalt, which includes a bonded wearing course.

The paving operation will take place on southbound Highway 101 near Patterson Avenue from Sunday night through Friday morning during the overnight hours of 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. beginning, Sunday Nov. 7 through Wednesday, Nov. 23. There will be no work scheduled on Thursday, Nov. 11 and Friday, Nov. 12.

The asphalt will improve conditions for motorists, provide better visibility in rainy conditions and reduce back splash and tire spray.

The contractor for the $5.5 million project is George Reed Inc. of Modesto. The project is expected to be completed in spring of 2011, weather permitting.

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!
