Retaining Wall Project North of Gaviota Tunnel to Begin Monday

Source: Susana Cruz for Caltrans

A project to perform maintenance on a retaining wall on Highway 101 from south of the Nojoqui Summit to north of the Gaviota Tunnel will begin Monday, April 14.

The No. 3 lane of northbound Highway 101 will be closed for one-half mile, about one mile north of the Junction with Highway 1. This highway improvement project is necessary following the recent storms in the area. Traffic delays are expected to be minimal.

This contractor for this $510,000 project is Robert J. Frank Construction of Redding. This project is expected to be complete 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!
