Nojoqui Bridge Replacement Project Results in Traffic Switch

Traffic Switch for Nojoqui Bridge Rail Replacement on US Highway 101 Now Underway

A project to replace the bridge rails on the Nojoqui Creek Bridge has resulted in a closure of the No. 2 (slow lane) in both directions of Hwy. 101 24/7. This closure is expected to last until this spring. These bridge railings were heavily damaged following a truck accident last year.

The No. 1 (fast lane) which re-opened following a five month closure will remain open during this phase of the project. The speed limit in this construction zone will be 45 mph and will be enforced by the CHP.

The contractor for this $1.5 million project is Granite Construction of Watsonville, CA.

This project is expected to be completed this spring.

Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through highway construction zones.
