Motorists heading north or south on Highway 101 on the Cuesta Grade will encounter lane closures and delays over the next two weeks as a project to resurface the freeway takes place.
The work, which started Sunday, stretches from Reservoir Canyon Road to north of Cuesta Peak, according to a news release from Caltrans. Lane closures will take place through Friday morning on northbound Highway 101 from 8 p.m. until 9 a.m. and southbound from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m.
One lane will remain open to traffic in both directions along the two-lane segment of the highway while two lanes will remain open along the three-lane segment of the highway.
Next week, there will be daytime lane closures on northbound Highway 101 from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m. and southbound from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
No road work will take place from Friday at 6 a.m. until Sunday at 8 p.m.
The $3.1 million project, being completed by Telfer Highway Technologies of McClellan, Calif., is expected to wrap up next month.
