A project to replace the Salsipuedes Creek Bridge and construct a retaining wall and fish passage on Highway 1 near Lompoc continued this week with the installation of temporary traffic signals, a Caltrans spokesman said.
The signals will maintain one-way reversing traffic control 24 hours a day, seven days a week through May 2020, said Caltrans spokesman Jim Shivers.
Work on the project is expected to be completed in June 2021.
The contractor for the $5 million project is CalPortland Construction of Santa Maria.
Shivers reminded motorists to move over and slow down when driving through the highway work zone.
