Rock-Net Repairs Means Lane Closures Along 101 Near Gaviota

Caltrans will perform repairs to the rock nets along northbound Highway 101 from one-half mile south to 1 mile north of the Gaviota Tunnel beginning Monday, Nov. 7. The repairs will prevent large rocks from falling onto the highway.

As a result, the No. 2 (right) lane of northbound Highway 101 will be closed 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday. The No. 2 (right) lane of southbound Highway 101 is scheduled to be closed 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 9 and Thursday Nov. 10. No roadwork is scheduled on Fridays.

As a result of this project, the northbound Gaviota Roadside Rest Area will be closed Monday, Nov. 7, and may be closed on Tuesday, Nov. 8.

The contractor for this $80,000 project is Access Limited Construction of Oceano, CA. The project is expected to be completed by the end of November, weather permitting.

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!
