HIGHWAY 1 FULL OVERNIGHT CLOSURES SOUTH OF RAGGED POINT SCHEDULED FOR NEXT WEEK
SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY – A full closure of Highway 1 in both directions approximately two miles south of Ragged Point will take place on Monday, March 9 and Tuesday, March 10 during the overnight hours from 11:55 pm until 6 am.
This closure will extend from the traffic signals which maintain the 24/7 traffic control north and south of the project area between the San Carpoforo Creek Bridge and Ragged Point.
Access will be maintained for emergency responders. Electronic message boards will be posted to alert the public.
This full highway closure is necessary so that Caltrans can perform a concrete pour as part of a project to construct a viaduct and retaining wall along this portion of Highway 1.
This $4.1 million project is Souza Engineering of San Luis Obispo, CA. It’s scheduled to be complete by Spring of 2020.
