If you use the 33 Freeway to get between Ventura and the Ojai Valley, expect to be dealing with a lot of road work over the next eight or nine months.
Caltrans says starting this month a $12.5 million project begins to repair and replace pavement and make other improvements to a six-mile stretch of the 33 between the 101 in Ventura and Parkview Drive in Casitas Springs.
Road crews will be putting up concrete K-rail barriers along the freeway's bridges in order to repair bridges and upgrade guardrails.
Crews will also be repairing and replacing asphalt and concrete pavement along other portions of the freeway.
Much of the work will be done at night and every effort will be made to avoid any lane closures or full freeway closures during peak travel hours.
Still, they are advising drivers to allow extra time when they use the 33 Freeway.
The project should be completed by summer of next year.
