101 Freeway Will be Down to One Lane in Ventura, Nightly



The Ventura Freeway (U.S. 101) will have one northbound lane closed overnight on Monday, July 30, from 7 p.m. to 4 a.m. between Casitas Pass Road and Bates Road in Ventura County.


On southbound U.S. 101, one lane will be closed nightly at that location from 10 p.m. to 9 a.m. beginning Tuesday, July 31 through Friday, August 3.


One lane will remain open in both directions at all times.


The closures are related to a six-mile carpool lane project from Mobil Pier Road in Ventura County to Casitas Pass Road in Santa Barbara County that begin in spring 2012 and will complete in 2015. The $102 million project also will include a new pedestrian undercrossing in La Conchita, concrete barriers, a southbound bike lane, median landscaping, installation of Intelligent Transportation Systems, drainage improvements and median safety improvements.
