Caltrans will shut down one of the Highway 101 on-ramps in San Miguel for road construction.
Caltrans is working to improve eight miles of the highway through the area. That includes realigning Highway 101 to accommodate a new southbound on-ramp at South Mission Street, paving the highway and nearby ramps, and lowering the profile of the 101 at Camp Roberts to improve bridge clearance height. Crews are also working on drainage systems, guardrail and lighting improvements.
Starting Wednesday, Jan. 3, the southbound on-ramp at South Mission Street will be closed for eight months to allow for construction. Drivers can get around the closure by using 10th Street to Cemetery Road to the Highway 101 southbound on-ramp.
The $53 million project is scheduled to be complete in 2019.
