Caltrans announces plans for repaving nearly 22 lane miles of Highway 101 in Ventura County

Caltrans has announced plans to repave one of the most heavily used sections of Highway 101 on the South Coast, a move which will mean some temporary lane closures.

An estimated 75,000 motorists a day use the stretch of 101 daily.

The work will smooth the roadway, enhance safety with reflective lane stripes, and include the addition of new guardrails, retaining walls, and concrete barriers.

The work means that the number of lanes available in each direction will be reduced from three to two lanes for a four mile stretch of the 101. The Paving will take place during the overnight hours. Plans call for work to start late next month, with the project possibly extending into 2024.
