Hwy. 101 repaving in North County will bring lane and ramp closures

North County motorists can expect various lane and ramp closures in both directions of Highway 101 through August as crews repave the highway just north of Traffic Way in Atascadero to Vineyard Drive in Templeton.

The work, which began Monday, will take place overnight from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sunday through Friday.

The contractor for the $3.7 million project is Papich Construction of Pismo Beach.

Caltrans will post signs to alert motorists of the specific lane and ramp closures as the project moves along.
