In order to reduce frequent flooding, the County of San Luis Obispo Department of Public Works will begin paving streets as part of a drainage improvement project near the intersection of Highway 1 and 13th Street in Oceano.

Construction is tentatively scheduled to start after March 18, 2020, and conclude by the end of March, dependent upon weather.

This phase of the project includes the installation of new pavement at the following locations:

  • Front Street/Highway 1 - between the railroad overcrossing bridge at South 4th Street to 15th Street
  • 13th Street - between Front Street/Highway 1 and Warner Street
  • Paso Robles Street - between Front Street/Highway 1 and 15th Street
  • 15th Street - between Front Street/Highway 1 and Warner Street

Citizens should anticipate traffic disruptions like road closures and one-way travel. Detours will be established. Motorists are advised to consider alternative routes.

Residents along the road closures will be allowed access during construction.

Electronic message boards will be placed along Front Street and 13th Street for specific construction times as weather permits.
