Construction is underway on the Leucadia Streetscape Safety and Mobility Enhancements project on North Coast Highway 101 to create new striping and a dedicated bike lane. Starting Monday night at 9 p.m., Oct. 10, construction crews will begin slurry sealing Coast Highway between Basil Street and La Costa Avenue to extend the life of the pavement and provide a clean slate for new striping. Work is expected to be completed on Thursday, Oct. 14. Here’s what to expect:

• Nighttime working hours will be 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.

• Work will take place over three nights with at least one lane of traffic open in each direction at all times.

• On Oct. 10 at night, crews will slurry seal the inside lanes (adjacent to the medians) of southbound and northbound North Coast Highway 101. During this work, most left turns at intersections will be temporarily closed, and detour routes will be in place to navigate around the work zone.

• On Oct. 12 at night, crews will slurry seal the southbound outside lane and parking areas of North Coast Highway 101 adjacent to the sidewalk. During this work, most right turns at intersections and driveways will be temporarily closed, and detour routes will be in place to navigate around the work zone. Access to driveways and street parking on the west side of North Coast Highway 101 between Basil Street and La Costa Avenue will be temporarily closed. After 9pm, residents and workers can park in the parking pods on the east side of the 101 and access their buildings via the sidewalk. Emergency access will be allowed at all times.

• On Oct. 13 at night, crews will slurry seal the outside lane of northbound North Coast Highway 101 adjacent to the railroad tracks. During this work, all right turns will be temporarily closed, and detour routes will be in place to navigate around the work zone. Access to parking areas on the east side of North Coast Highway 101 between Phoebe Street and Basil Street will be temporarily closed.

• Cyclists will share the lane with vehicular traffic through the work zone between Basil Street and La Costa Avenue.  The City will post “Bikes May Use Full Lane” signs throughout the work zone.
