Highways 154/246 Roundabout Traffic Switch Set for Next Week

A project to construct a roundabout and improve safety on Highways 154 and 246 near Santa Ynez will result in a temporary traffic switch beginning at 6 a.m. Tuesday, July 15.

» Motorists traveling in both directions on Highways 154/246 will drive through the partially-completed roundabout. There will be daytime lane closures Monday through Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. with delays not to exceed 10 minutes.

» Motorists headed eastbound on Highway 154 to reach Highway 246 are encouraged to use the roundabout and not make an abrupt right turn onto Highway 246.

» Armour Ranch Road is now open during this phase of the project. Motorists and bicyclists are encouraged to share the road.

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

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!
