Roundabout Being Built at Intersection of Highways 154 and 246

Construction of a roundabout at the intersection of highways 154 and 246 near Santa Ynez is set to begin 1/6. The $3.3 million project ​— ​carried out by Granite Construction from Watsonville and expected to be completed by October 2014 ​— ​will include “minimal lane closures,” according to Caltrans. Motorists can expect one-way reversing traffic control and lane closures during the various stages of the project Monday through Friday during nighttime from 7:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. and during the day from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  Motorists can expect delays not to exceed 10 minutes, Caltrans reps said.
