Construction of Roundabout Project at Highways 154/246 to Begin Next Week

A project to construct a roundabout and improve safety at Highways 154 and 246 near Santa Ynez is scheduled to begin next Monday, Jan. 6.

Motorists will encounter intermittent one-way reversing traffic control and lane closures during the various stages of the project Monday through Friday during overnight hours from 7:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. and during daytime from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Motorists can expect delays not to exceed 10 minutes.

A stop sign will be placed in both directions of Highway 154 at Highway 246. The speed limit in this construction area will be reduced to 25 mph. Most of this work will take place behind a protective barrier, resulting in minimal lane closures.

The contractor for this $3.3 million project is Granite Construction of Watsonville. This project is expected to be completed in October 2014.

Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through highway work 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!
