Full Closure of 101 in Goleta Tuesday Overnight

Cathedral Oaks Realignment Requires Detours both South- and North-bound

A project to realign Cathedral Oaks Road with Hollister Avenue and replace the Hwy. 101 overcrossing at Hollister Avenue will result in a full closure of Hwy. 101 on Tuesday November 9 at Winchester Canyon Road for the installation of scaffolding.

Northbound Hwy. 101 will be closed from 10 pm until 1 am. Motorists will exit Hwy. 101 at the Winchester Canyon Road off-ramp and detour to Calle Real before reaching the northbound on-ramp at the existing Hollister overcrossing.

Southbound Hwy. 101 will be closed from 1 am until 4 am. Motorists will exit Hwy. 101 at the Winchester/Hollister off-ramp before returning to Hwy. 101 via the temporary southbound on-ramp.

Electronic message boards and flaggers will help motorists travel through the project area. The contractor for this $7 million project is Shasta Constructors Inc. of Redding CA. This project is expected to be completed in May of 2011, weather permitting.

Caltrans reminds motorists that ‘we’re here to get you there.’
