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.
