Full closure tonight for Holman Highway 68 Roundabout Projec

PACIFIC GROVE, Calif. - Starting Thursday night at 7 p.m. a full nighttime closure of eastbound and westbound traffic is expected. According to Project Manager Bobby Pentorali this closure is necessary for the next step of the project to get done.

"We removed all the soil there. We put in new compacted soil, which is really the base for the new roadway. Tonight we are going to come in and pave that. Once we finish the paving we are going to come back Sunday night, we're going to do some traffic striping and we're going to move some of the barriers out there," said Project Manager Bobby Pentorali.

The construction work tonight and Sunday will be setting them up for stage three of the project, which is done behind concrete barriers.  According to the project manager a bulk of the project will be getting done over the next few months.

Crews are expected to re-open the road by  6 a.m. Friday morning.
