In addition, the northbound on-ramp to US Highway 101 at Linden Avenue will be closed as time and work conditions allow.  Motorists can expect delays during these highway repairs as a result of recent storm activity in the area.  These repairs are being performed to ensure a smooth ride for motorists.
