A number of road projects in the area will slow, detour traffic

Posted at 4:52 PM, Jul 08, 2018

Monday will mark a busy week for traffic signs and orange cones. Here are some closures and construction you should keep in mind. 

Highway 1 along Big Sur

Ahead of the  July 20th reopening of Highway 1 along Big Sur, the southern closure on Highway 1 is expected to move from Salmon Creek to Ragged Point Monday morning to continue work. The closure will move back to salmon creek late in the day on Friday until the highway is fully opened. It closed after the massive landslide took out most of the highway at Mud Creek in May 2017. 

Cambria resurfacing

In Cambria, the next phase of resurfacing will begin Monday on three different routes: Main Street in the West Village, Burton Drive starting at Highway 1 and ending at Eton Road, as well as Main Street from Bridge Street to Santa Rosa Creek Road. This will help extend the life of the pavement. Businesses in those areas will still be open, but drivers should expect one-way traffic and delays through Wednesday, July 11. 

Paso Robles paving

More paving will be going on in Paso Robles along Highway 46 from Airport Road to Geneseo Road. Several lane closures will be happening through this week and each Sunday until completed. Work will go from 7 p.m. to 1 p.m. the following day.


A two-week maintenance project will cause delays north of the Cholame "y" — the intersection of Highway 41 & 46 — Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday this week. Traffic will be one-way and delays should not exceed 20 minutes. Remember to move over and slow down during construction zones. 

Milpas Street closure

The northbound lanes of Milpas Street from Tri-County Produce to the Highway 101 off-ramps will be closed for an entire month starting Monday. This is so crews can expedite construction of a new sidewalk and pedestrian-safety fencing on Milpas Street, across from the Union Pacific Railroad crossing. Calle Cesar Chavez is the recommended detour route.
