Surface Improvement Project to Begin Thursday on Highway 101 in Gaviota

Source: Jim Shivers for Caltrans

A project to improve the surface of southbound Highway 101 from the bottom of the Nojoqui Grade to one-half mile north of the Gaviota Rest Area is scheduled to begin this Thursday.

Motorists will encounter one southbound lane closed Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Fridays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. One southbound lane will remain open at all times. The CHP will be present to maintain a safe condition for everyone.

This project is expected to increase the surface friction on the highway, which includes two sharp curves north of the rest area.

This contractor for this $289,000 safety project is American Civil Constructors West Coast Inc. from Benicia. This project is expected to be completed next month.

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!
