Staff Report

A project to resurface State Route 246 from just east of the Separation with Highway 1 (near North 12th Street) to Mission Gate Road will begin on Monday, Nov. 30 through Friday, Dec. 4, weather permitting.

This grind and pave operation will result in a full closure of State Route 246 at this location each day from 7 am until 3 pm.

Motorists headed west may detour onto Purisima Road to reach Lompoc while motorists wishing to travel east towards Buellton may detour onto Hwy. 1 “H” Street to Purisima Road.  Electronic message boards will be activated to inform the public about this roadwork.

This roadwork will be performed by the Caltrans Maintenance team from Buellton, CA.

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