Alert: Caltrans work on Route 126

Route 126 Pavement Replacement Project
FULL FREEWAY CLOSURE PLANNED

Ventura and Santa Paula – The California Department of Transportation
(Caltrans) will close portions of State Route 126 as part of a 13-mile pavement replacement project. The entire project extends from the Ventura Freeway (U.S. 101) to Hallock Drive. The following closures are weather permitting and subject to change:

Nightly, Sunday, January 22, through Thursday January 26:
· 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. – full freeway closure of eastbound Route 126 from
Briggs Road to Peck Road
· 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. – eastbound SR-126 on-ramp at Briggs Road
· 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. – eastbound SR-126 off-ramp at Peck Road

Wells Road
· 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. – eastbound SR-126 off-ramp at Wells Road
· 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. – eastbound SR-126 on- and off-ramps at Briggs Road

The $10 million project involves replacing deteriorated concrete pavement slabs with rapid-setting, high-strength concrete on the freeway mainline, placing concrete overlay on various on-and off-ramps, sealing cracks, grinding the pavement and restriping. The project is estimated to complete by the end of 2006. When completed, the result will be a smoother riding surface that will last longer and require less maintenance. A signed detour for the full eastbound SR-126 closure will be posted for motorists convenience. Caltrans advises motorists to please, SLOW FOR THE CONE ZONE.
