101 Lanes Closing for Repairs

The northbound lanes of Highway 101 near Gaviota State Park will be closed for two to three weeks tentatively beginning on Tuesday evening, July 10, to replace a drainage culvert under the highway. These repairs, said a Caltrans spokesperson, are necessary to prevent a more serious, long-term roadway failure. Motorists traveling northbound will be detoured onto southbound 101 lanes, which will be reduced to one lane in each direction through the Gaviota Pass area.
