A Smooth Move

Motorists on the 101 Freeway between Calabasas and Camarillo are noticing a distinct difference in their driving experience with the recent completion of two pavement rehabilitation project in that area.

It was a bumpy ride while construction was underway, and Caltrans appreciates the patience of those who had to put up with it. Now we are told that the roadway is "like glass" but the most important part is that pavement life has been significantly extended and maintenance needs reduced. As a result, fewer lane closures will be needed.

A final section of the project, between Pleasant Valley Road in Camarillo and Padre Juan Creek in Ventura is still ongoing and is expected to be finished before the end of the year.
