Caltrans will close portions of State Route 126 as part of a 13-mile pavement replacement project. The entire project extends from the Ventura Freeway (U.S. 101) to Hallock Drive. The following closures are weather permitting and subject to change, ramp closures are as needed:
Daily, Monday March 20, through Friday March 24:
7 a.m. to 3 p.m. – The following on- and off-ramps east- and westbound on SR-126 between the US-101 interchange
and Hallock Road may be closed intermittently for paving: Victoria Avenue, Kimball Road, Wells Road, Briggs Road, Peck Road, Palm Avenue and Hallock Road.
7 a.m. to 2 p.m. – one lane east or westbound SR-126 between US-101 interchange and Hallock Road may be closed intermittently for paving
Nightly, Monday, March 20, through Friday March 24:
9 p.m. to 6 a.m. – full freeway closure eastbound SR-126 from Kimball Road to Briggs Road
9 p.m. to 6 a.m. – one lane eastbound SR-126 from Kimball Road to Hallock Road may intermittently close.
9 p.m. to 6 a.m. – US-101 connector to eastbound SR-126

The $10 million project involves replacing deteriorated concrete pavement slabs with rapid-setting, high-strength concrete on the freeway mainline, placing concrete overlay on various on-and off-ramps, sealing cracks, grinding the pavement and restriping. The project is estimated to complete by the end of 2006. When completed, the result will be a smoother riding surface that will last longer and require less maintenance. A signed detour for the full eastbound SR-126 closure will be posted.
