Highway 156 Pothole Repairs on Tuesday March 7 To Result in Day time Traffic Delays

⚠️Traveler Alert⚠️ SR 156 travelers may encounter up to ten-minute delays today, Tuesday, March 7, in both directions between San Juan Bautista and the City of Hollister between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Working behind moving flagged closures, SR 156 Improvement Project construction crews will take advantage of a forecasted break in the rain ��️ to conduct pothole repairs, which have multiplied in the recent storms

Travelers are asked to allow extra time, remain alert, slow down, and move over a lane when they see construction personnel and trucks along or near the construction zone. The construction team thanks the public for their patience.

The San Benito SR 156 Improvement Project will construct five new miles of a four-lane at-grade expressway between The Alameda in San Juan Bautista and Union Road in the City of Hollister, supporting goods movement along a critical east-west corridor. The project will also reduce peak hour traffic congestion and save millions in vehicle operating and accident costs.

For questions, please contact Caltrans Central Coast (District 5) Public Affairs at 805-549-3318. You can also learn more about the project and view past press releases by visiting http://sanbenitocog.org/transportation-updates/
