Caltrans has announced that a $30 million contract has been approved with Papich Construction of Pismo Beach to widen a 5-mi. (8 km) stretch of Hwy. 46 East near Paso Robles. This widening will convert a two lane highway into a four lane expressway from Airport Road to Geneseo Road.
“This is the first phase of an absolutely vital project,” Caltrans District 5 Director Rich Krumholz said. “This widening represents the single best thing we can do to improve safety and mobility in this critical east-west corridor. We hope to keep systematically widening to the east as funding becomes available.”
Utility relocation work was expected to begin in February. Construction on the widening is expected to begin in April. Any lane closures as a result of this project will take place overnight between 8 pm and 6:30 am. No lane closures are anticipated during the daytime hours.
This project is expected to be complete by the winter of 2010.
