Closure of Highway 101 northbound lanes in Gaviota for emergency repairs will begin Tuesday evening.
The lanes will be closed 24 hours a day and seven days a week for two to three weeks for necessary repairs to prevent long-term roadway failure and to maintain a safe highway condition, Caltrans said.
Motorists traveling northbound will be detoured onto southbound Highway 101 lanes which will be reduced to one lane in each direction through the Gaviota Pass area.
Northbound and southbound two-way traffic will be separated with channelizers from just south of Gaviota State Park at Mariposa/Reina to the Highway 101/ Highway 1 interchange.
Southbound traffic will be reduced down to one lane beginning at the Nojoqui Grade and both Gaviota roadside rest areas will also be shut down.
Businesses in the area will be accessible and bicyclists will be able to travel through the area in both directions.
The speed limit in the area will be temporarily reduced and the CHP will be patrolling the project area to ensure safety during construction.
Caltrans will also be providing auto and truck tow services during peak hours along the corridor.
The northbound 101 left-turn pocket into Gaviota State Park will also be closed and motorists will be detoured north to the Highway 101/1 interchange before returning to the park.
Motorists exiting the park must also turn right onto southbound Highway 101 to the Mariposa/Reina interchange where they can turn around and go northbound.
