The County of San Luis Obispo Department of Public Works will begin construction to rehabilitate pavement beginning in mid July. The work will include removing and replacing failed pavement, followed by an overlay of asphalt, and reconstructing various roadside facilities such as dikes and shoulders.


The locations of construction include:

  • O’Donovan Road from Highway 229 to Highway 58 in Creston; and
  • Bennett Way starting at Vineyard Drive to the south end in Templeton.

Work is scheduled to begin in mid July, and is expected to be completed in mid August, depending on the weather.  For the safety of the public and the workers, traffic will be subject to detours or reduced to one-way controls with flaggers and pilot cars.  Delays are expected to be up to 10 minutes during major operations.  Motorists are advised to adjust their travel plans in consideration of the delays and consider alternative routes. 

The work is required to maintain the pavement structural section to avoid costly repairs in the future, and to provide safe roads. The project is funded by County of San Luis Obispo Road Maintenance funds, and the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017; Senate Bill 1 gas tax revenues.

Souza Construction, Inc. of San Luis Obispo, CA has been awarded the contract for $1,533,626 to perform the work.
