Highway 192 Resurfacing Project to Continue with Overnight Closures

A project to grind and resurface Highway 192 from the junction with Highway 154 to just east of Tye Road will continue next week with road work taking place from Highway 154 to La Colina Junior High School.

This project will also include the replacement of detector loops at signalized intersections.

Motorists will encounter one-way reversing traffic control with a pilot car during the overnight hours of 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday, June 2 through Friday morning, June 6. The grinder and jackhammer work, which will create noise, will only take place from 6 to 10 p.m. between Cieneguitas Road and La Colina Junior High School.

Motorists should look for the “Wait for Pilot Car” signs at all driveways and side streets and must wait and follow the pilot car in the direction it is headed. Motorists can expect delays not to exceed 10 minutes. Electronic message boards will be activated to inform the public about this project.

Detector loops will be installed at the intersection of Highway 192 and Cieniguitas Road from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, June 2 through Friday, June 6.

The contractor for this $800,000 project is CalPortland Construction of Santa Maria. This project is expected to be completed in June.

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