UPDATE: The Caltrans project to perform a rock scaling project on Highway 101 has been postponed.

The project is postponed due to expected rainfall in the area.

The roadwork will be re-scheduled at a later date. Electronic message boards will be activated to inform drivers of the new date.

If you're planning on driving Highway 101 next week through Gaviota there will be some delays.

The northbound lanes of the 101 just north of the Gaviota tunnel will be closed on an intermittent basis this upcoming Monday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Caltrans will be doing a rock scaling operation to improve public safety.

The work will continue on Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., weather permitting.

The California Highway Patrol will lead drivers to a full stop for a maximum of 10 minutes.
