Crews are working to repair a sinkhole that opened up on a Highway 101 southbound on-ramp in Goleta last month.
The sinkhole at the Turnpike Ave. soutbound on-ramp was discovered on Dec. 27, according to Caltrans.
The on-ramp is closed until repairs are finished.
Caltrans officials say excavation work began last Friday and will continue this week from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. everyday.
The Turnpike Ave. on-ramp is expected to reopen the week of Feb. 3.
Drivers traveling south should use the Highway 101 on-ramps at South Patterson Ave. or State St. while the Turnpike Ave. on-ramp is shut down. Caltrans says delays should not be more than 10 minutes.
