Highway 1 improvements begin June 2

A project to resurface Highway 1 from the North Aptos undercrossing to the junction with State Route 9 began on June 2. 

This project will include upgrades to Americans With Disabilities (ADA)  Ramps, bridge rail replacement at the Fish Hook and Ocean Street bridges, improvements to electrical systems, bridge deck treatments and the replacement of concrete barriers.

The installation of construction signs began Monday during the daytime hours followed by the beginning of concrete barrier replacement the week of June 2.

The resurfacing of the highway is expected to begin next year.

Construction will occur each week Sunday night through Friday morning from 9 p.m. no later than 6 a.m. 

Motorists will encounter intermittent closures of the Hwy. 1/17 connector ramps. Caltrans will announce in advance when these ramps closures will occur.

The contractor for this $22 million project is Granite Construction of Watsonville, CA.

This project is expected to be complete by the end of 2020.
