A highway improvement project in northern San Luis Obispo County is now complete.

The project took place along eight miles of Highway 101 in the San Miguel area from north of Monterey Road to south of the East Garrison overcrossing near Camp Roberts in Monterey County.

Caltrans says the highway was realigned to accommodate a new southbound on-ramp at South Mission Street. The highway and nearby ramps were also re-paved and the profile of Highway 101 at Camp Roberts was lowered to increase the bridge clearance height. Drainage systems, guardrails, and lighting were also improved.

The contractor for this $53 million project was Security Paving of Sylmar.
