FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PAVEMENT REHABILITATION PROJECT IN SALINAS TO RESULT IN FULL CLOSURES OF US 101 BEGINNING THIS SUNDAY NIGHT AUGUST 30″

SALINAS – A Caltrans pavement rehabilitation project in both directions of US 101 in Salinas will result in full closures of US 101 next week at various locations between E. Market St. and Boronda Rd. beginning this Sunday night, August 30.

Motorists can expect delays of up to ten minutes and temporary detours will direct traffic on to city streets and around these closures.

Northbound US 101: Sunday, single lane closures begin at 8 pm and full closures take place from 10 pm to 4 am. Monday through Thursday, single lane closures begin 7 pm, with full closures from 9 pm to 4 am.

Southbound US 101: Sunday through Thursday, single lane closures begin 7 pm, with full closures from 9 pm to 4 am.

Note: Only one direction of US 101 will experience a full closure during overnight work. Electronic message signs will be activated to inform the public about this roadwork.

This major pavement rehabilitation work includes sawing and removal of existing road and installation of precast concrete pavement, with accompanying trucks, noise, and vibration. This project also includes improvements to 19 on and off ramps along this 4-mile stretch of highway.

Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through highway work zones.
