Construction to widen the U.S. Hwy. 101 Santa Maria River Bridge will result in motorists on northbound Hwy. 101 being rerouted onto the newly constructed lanes over the next two overnights beginning Monday, April 22 at 7 pm until Tuesday, April 23 at 6 am and then again tonight, Tuesday April 23 at 7 pm until Wednesday morning, April 24 at 6 am. This detour will allow for improvements to be made on the existing northbound lanes of traffic.
This detour will be in effect for approximately six months to allow for the resurfacing of the northbound lanes.
Cyclists should be aware of limited shoulder space on the bridge at all times during this phase of construction. The following detour is recommended. Cyclists traveling southbound can detour along Thompson Avenue to Highway 166 East to Bull Canyon Road to Donovan Road. Those traveling northbound can detour along Donovan Road to Bull Canyon Road to Highway 166 West to Thompson Avenue.
