KING CITY — An ongoing construction project south of King City will require 24/7 closures of the northbound Highway 101 on- and off-ramps at Wildhorse Road beginning Sunday night.

The ramp closures, scheduled to begin at 11:55 p.m. on July 12, are expected to last until Sunday, Aug. 2, but could extend into the week of Aug. 9 if necessary. A detour for northbound motorists will be at First Street.

“No two consecutive ramps will be closed at the same time,” according to Caltrans in a news release. “Electronic message signs will be posted alerting the traveling public of these ramp closures.”

The $78 million construction project, which began in the spring of 2019, includes rehabilitating 10.5 miles of Highway 101, installing a concrete median barrier and widening and seismic retrofitting of the Salinas River Bridge from just south of Wildhorse Road to Teague Avenue in King City.

The entire project is scheduled to be completed in 2021.
