San Luis Obispo

A project to repave Los Osos Valley Road from South Higuera Street to Calle Joaquin will begin Sunday. The project includes traffic signal improvements.

The Highway 101 on- and off-ramps at Los Osos Valley Road will be closed in both directions from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. beginning Sunday through May 14. The CHP will be on site to help ensure that traffic moves smoothly through the area.

The contractor for the $195,000 project is Burke Construction of San Luis Obispo.

Heavy winter rains deteriorated the road conditions, making the fixes a priority for the city.
