Construction will lead to some closures of Highway 101 in the next few days.
Northbound Highway 101 between Bates Road and Casitas Pass Road will be reduced by a lane Sunday starting at 7 p.m. It will reopen at 6 a.m. Monday. The closures will continue Monday and Tuesday, similarly starting at 7 p.m. and reopening at 6 a.m., according to the state Department of Transportation.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, one southbound lane between Casitas Pass Road to Bates Road will close at 8 p.m. and reopen at 9 a.m.
The closures are related to the six-mile carpool lane in construction both directions from Mobil Pier Road in Ventura County to Casitas Pass Road in Santa Barbara County, according to the department.
The area was chosen because it's heavily traveled, mostly by workers who commute between Ventura and Santa Barbara.
The project, which began in spring 2012, is scheduled for completion late in 2015. It will also include a southbound bike path and a pedestrian undercrossing at La Conchita. ___
