Multiple On/Off Ramps on Highway 1 in Santa Cruz Co. Subject to Closure Through the End of January
Multiple on and off ramps along Highway 1 in Santa Cruz County will be subject to intermittent closure again beginning Monday Dec. 14.
Daytime closures to install pavement markings will continue Monday through Friday, from 9 am to 3 pm, through the end of the month, weather permitting.
Both the northbound and southbound on and off ramps of Highway 1 at the following interchanges will be subject to closure. These include:
- State Park Dr.
- Park Ave.
- 41st Ave.
- Soquel Ave.
- Morrissey Blvd.
Other ramps which are impacted include:
- Southbound Ocean St. off ramp
- Northbound Ocean St. on ramp
- Southbound Plymouth St. on ramp
- Northbound Emeline Ave. off ramp
No more than two ramps will be closed in any direction at the same time.
The closures of these on and off ramps are necessary to permit installation of thermoplastic pavement markings. Temperatures at night are too cold to work with these materials which necessitates these daytime closures.
The above closures are scheduled to continue this Monday Jan. 11 and continue through the end of the month. Cooperative weather may shorten this time frame.
Motorists are advised to expect delays of up to 10 minutes.
Message and directional signs will be in place to assist motorists traveling in the area.
Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through highway work zones.
