Caltrans to erect temporary concrete barrier at Hwy 1, Salinas Road
As part of a $12 million safety and congestion reduction project at Highway 1 and Salinas Road, Caltrans will begin constructing a temporary concrete barrier Monday, Nov. 1. The work will take place at night, from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Friday. The barrier work should be complete Friday, Nov. 5, weather permitting. During the project, crews will stop traffic for up to 20-minutes at a time in the southbound direction and will close the northbound off-ramp from Highway 1 onto Salinas Road. Motorists traveling southbound can expect to one-way traffic control with flaggers. Delays of up to 30-minutes also should be expected while sections of the barrier are being placed. Trucks seeking to use Salinas Road from northbound Highway 1 should use Riverside Drive/Highway 129 instead. Electronic message signs will be posted to alert motorists about the road work. The barrier work is part of a larger project that will create a fly-over ramp from southbound Highway 1 to Salinas Road, reducing travel delays on the highway and eliminating traffic collisions at that intersection. For more information about the project call 372-0862 or visit www.dot.ca.gov/dist05/maint/road/upmon/htm.
