ATASCADERO — Construction is currently still underway on Traffic Way between El Camino Real and Highway 101. G. Sosa Construction is conducting all improvements on the northwest side of Traffic Way before shifting to constructing improvements on the southeast side. Work is being completed along one roadway edge. Throughout construction, the outside traffic lane is closed, with traffic shifted to the other side and a single lane remaining open in each direction. Additional lane closures will not be necessary; however, there are some intermittent delays, especially during higher traffic volumes.

Road work is expected to be completed in mid–June.

Additional road work is in progress for the Atascadero Mall project at the intersection of Atascadero Mall and Ardilla Avenue, near the pedestrian tunnel crossing Highway 101 in front of Atascadero Bible Church (ABC).

A temporary detour is set up to route through traffic traveling from Atascadero Avenue to Ardilla onto the other side of the center median to create two-way traffic on the west side of the median (ECHO side).


The east side of the median is closed to through traffic but will maintain access to ABC, North County Christian School, and the pedestrian tunnel. However, the east side of the Atascadero Mall allows two-way to allow vehicles to exit from ABC and North County Christian School.

Motorists are encouraged to pay close attention to the detour and to plan for a little extra time if travel through the area is necessary. Large trucks, trailers, and recreational vehicles should use alternative routes due to the tight, constrained conditions at the intersection of Atascadero Mall and Ardilla Avenue. The project will be completed in late April early May.
