A project to replace the Salsipuedes Creek Bridge and build a retaining wall and fish passage on Highway 1 near Lompoc continues this week with the pouring of the bridge deck for this new structure, Caltrans announced in a press release Tuesday.
Construction on the approach slabs and concrete barrier is scheduled to take place over the next two weeks.
The traffic signal at the work site will remain in operation through May 2020 and will maintain one-way reversing traffic control, according to the press release. Oversized vehicles must use an alternate route during this project.
The contractor for the $5 million project is CalPortland Construction of Santa Maria. The project is expected to be complete in June 2021.
