San Luis Obispo drivers should expect traffic delays along Johnson Avenue from Buchon Street to Ella Street as workers replace a gas main.
Lane closures will affect traffic in both directions from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., with delays anticipated to last through Aug. 16.
In December 2012, the Southern California Gas Co. identified the aged gas main as needing replacement, said Matt Horn, senior civil engineer. A private contractor has been hired by the gas company do to the work, Horn said.
A new four-inch pipe is being installed. Drivers are encouraged to use alternate routes while the work is being done.
