Highway 154 Repaving Project Near Lake Cachuma Will Cause Delays Next Week

Motorists can expect to experience delays on Highway 154 next week while Caltrans repaves a section of the busy roadway near Santa Barbara.

The partial closure will be in effect, weather permitting, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, according to Caltrans spokesman Jim Shivers.

State crews will grind and pave a section of the state route from east of Lake Cachuma to west of Paradise Road in the hills above Santa Barbara.

Drivers will go through a one-way reversing traffic control with delays that aren’t expected to exceed 20 minutes, Shivers said.

The California Highway Patrol will be on hand to ensure traffic safety while the Caltrans maintenance team performs work. 

“Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through highway work zones,” Shivers said.     

If weather prevents roadwork from being completed by next Friday, Shivers said crews would push work into the following week.

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!
