FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WINTER PREP WORK ON HIGHWAY 1 CONTINUES BETWEEN
CARMEL HIGHLANDS AND GARRAPATA STATE PARK
MONTEREY COUNTY – Travelers in both directions of Highway 1 south of Carmel Highlands will encounter one-way traffic control Tuesday thru Thursday this week as Caltrans crews conduct winter prep operations.
Travelers will encounter one-way traffic control this week on Highway 1 between Garrapata State Park and Carmel Highlands (Post Mile 66.8 to 67.8) from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm.
This work will take place on Tuesday Sept. 19, Wednesday Sept. 20, and Thursday Sept. 21.
Travelers can expect delays of up to five minutes
Message and directional signs will be in place to alert travelers.
This traffic control will permit crews to clean debris and growth from ditches and culverts in advance of winter weather. This drainage infrastructure helps divert water away from roadways enabling them to stay open longer during inclement weather.
Road information and updates can also be found on Caltrans District 5 Social Media platforms: Twitter at: @CaltransD5, Facebook at: Caltrans Central Coast (District 5) and Instagram at: Caltrans_D5.
Our crews deserve to get home safely too.
