Project To Straighten Potential Dangerous Highway 101 Curve In Santa Barbara County Set To Start
A project to realign a potentially dangerous section of Highway 101 on the Central Coast is set to begin. The project will straighten a curve on northbound 101in the Gaviota area. The work zone extends from Mariposa Reina to the Gaviota rest stop. The construction will take start Monday, and is expected to take about five months. There could be delays of up to ten minutes, and concrete barriers being set up to protect construction crews will also mean a narrowing of lanes in the area.
