Rock Net Repairs to Cause Some Delays on 101


Caltrans will perform repairs to the rock nets and barriers in various locations near Highway 101 from the Gaviota Beach State Park to just north of the Nojoqui Creek Bridge beginning Tuesday, March 7.

Motorists will encounter intermittent closures of the northbound No. 2 (right) lane of Highway 101 from 7:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, while the southbound No. 2 (right) lane will be closed from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.

The project will relocate to State Route 154 between San Antonio Creek Road to just north of the San Lucas Creek Bridge on Monday, March 20.

Motorists will encounter one-way reversing traffic control in various locations, 8 a.m.-4 pm. Monday through Friday.

Expect delays not to exceed 15 minutes. Electronic message boards will be activated to inform the public about this roadwork. 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!
