ORCUTT A project to reconstruct the northbound Highway 101 on and offramps to accomodate a new signalized intersection at Clark Avenue near Orcutt will begin April 6.
Motorists are expected to encounter intermittent ramp and lane closures from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. starting Monday night through Friday morning and from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The closures are anticipated to continue until the end of August, according to Caltrans officials.
The project also includes a minor widening of the southbound on and offramps and a repaving of Clark Avenue adjacent to the 101. The contractor for the $2 million project is Granite Construction of Santa Barbara. The project is expected to be complete this summer. Motorists are reminded to move over and slow down when driving through highway construction zones.
