A four-day project to resurface State Route 246 from the separation with Highway 1 (near North 12th Street) to Mission Gate Road will run Tuesday, Oct. 6 through Friday, Oct. 9.

The grind-and-pave operation will result in a full closure of State Route 246 at this location each day, 7 a.m.-3 p.m. Westbound motorists may detour onto Purisima Road to reach Lompoc while those heading east toward Buellton may detour onto Hwy. 1 “H” Street to Purisima Road.

Electronic message boards will be activated to inform the public about the roadwork. This roadwork will be performed by the Caltrans Maintenance team from Buellton.

Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through highway construction zones.
