Highway 101: Caltrans Accelerating Road Work


Caltrans is accelerating repairs on Highway 101, with help from Senate Bill One, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017.

Caltrans is repaving more than 23 miles of highway 101. The $3.1 million pavement project will be used for rubberized asphalt to make long-lasting repairs to restore the highway, with aims to then improve traffic safety.

Myles Cochrane of Caltrans explains the decision to move up the project, was because it would become more expensive as time goes on. Now they say, it’ll happen just in time for tourism season.

Work is scheduled through the end of this week north of the Prairie Creek Park Under crossing. One lane in each direction will be open during this time.
