Finishing touches done on rest areas
GAVIOTA — The Gaviota rest areas on both sides of Highway 101 were scheduled to reopen by Thursday evening.
They’ve been closed since 2021 while Caltans installed a new waterline between the northbound and southbound facilities to improve the water pressure.
The News-Press stopped by the rest areas on Thursday afternoon and saw the areas were still closed while Caltrans did its final work.
