PASO ROBLES, Calif. - Caltrans will be working to install new concrete median barriers along the southbound lanes of Highway 101 in Paso Robles starting Tuesday night.
Construction will occur near the Spring Street onramp near Niblick Road and extend to Highway 46 West.
Caltrans plans to install temporary protective barriers for highway workers from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. along the inside shoulder of the number one lane.
After the overnight work is complete, installation of the concrete median will begin next Tuesday, June 1, and will continue from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. during the following weekdays.
Caltrans said construction to remove guardrails and install concrete median barriers on Highway 41 from Old Morro Road to the Atascadero Creek Bridge is expected to resume this spring.
That project will cause lane closures and traffic control Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and overnight between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. Work hours on Fridays will run between 12:05 a.m. to 6 a.m. and during the day from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The contractor for this $2.5 million project is Souza Construction from San Luis Obispo.
The project is scheduled to finish by summer.
As always, Caltrans reminds drivers to drive slowly and move over when passing through highway construction zones.
