Closure Near Red Barn to Improve Safety on Highway 101

Closure Near Red Barn to Improve Safety on Highway 101

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 24-Jun-2009

JUNE 24, 2009 - AROMAS - The state transportation department announced last week it will be closing the southbound Hwy. 101 left-turn lane just after San Juan Road near the Red Barn by Monday, according to a press release.

The closure means drivers no longer can turn left at that point - typically to stop at the Red Barn or go northbound on Hwy. 101 - and are encouraged to turn around at the Highways 101-156 interchange. The press statement also notes that motorists also will be prohibited from making U-turns on southbound Hwy. 101 between San Juan Road and San Miguel Canyon Road.

Caltrans pointed out that the closure is intended to reduce the number of collisions along the busy corridor in northern Monterey County.

For the project, crews will restripe that section of Hwy. 101 and raise the curb to eliminate the southbound left-turn lane. Traffic signs prohibiting U-turns will be installed, and the work will be done in conjunction with a current paving job on Hwy. 101 at the San Juan Road intersection, according to the press release.
