Work to Begin on Highway 246 Left Turn Lane at Meadowvale Road

Source: Jim Shivers for Caltrans

A project to construct a left turn lane on Highway 246 at Meadowvale Road will begin on Monday.

This project will also include widening the embankment and making drainage improvements.

Motorists will encounter one-way reversing traffic control Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Fridays. Electronic message signs have been activated to inform motorists about this roadwork. Motorists can expect a delay not to exceed 10 minutes.

This safety project will reduce the number of rear end and broadside collisions involving motorists turning left onto Meadowvale Road from Highway 246.

The contractor for this $674,000 project is Souza Construction of San Luis Obispo. This project is expected to be completed in March.

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!
