SALINAS, Calif. -

Daytime paving on Highway 101 and San Juan Road will affect traffic April 16th through the 17th as crews work on paving sections of the median. The work will temporarily limit access to San Juan Road at Highway 101 and close the northbound left turn lane to Cole Road.

Temporary closures:
·         San Juan Road between Highway 101 and Dunbarton Road

·         The northbound Highway 101 left turn lane to Cole Road

The closures will occur from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. beginning Wednesday, April 16th. Motorists should detour to San Miguel Canyon Road or Cannon Road.

The San Juan Road Interchange Project will improve safety and reduce congestion on U.S. Highway 101 between Dunbarton Road in Monterey County and Cole Road in San Benito County. The $69 million project will remove three major at-grade intersections (San Juan Road, Dunbarton Road, and Cole Road) and replace them with a new interchange near the Red Barn at San Juan Road and U.S.101. The project is supported by $10 million from the Recovery Act and $28 million from Proposition 1B, a 2006 voter-approved bond. In total, nearly $15 billion in Proposition 1B funds have been distributed statewide.
