Work to repair a portion of Highway 1 near Lompoc washed away by the latest storm is expected to take a few weeks to complete.

Caltrans says 24/7 one-way traffic control will be in place along the highway a half mile north of Jalama Road until the road is fixed.

A temporary signal is also installed to facilitate an efficient flow for travelers.

Drivers should expect delays in the area. Delays are not expected to last longer than 20 minutes. They may detour to State Route 246 to travel between the Lompoc area and Highway 101 to avoid traffic delays.

Caltrans says a full closure of the highway in the area may be needed at times during the repair work.
