The slow lane of the 126 from Santa Paula to the 101 is ruined now. That used to be the smoother of the two lanes. But not anymore, not since it got “fixed “. I ride a motorcycle and now that lane is so bad it’s become very dangerous and is now almost unridable. It’s a safety hazard now, if anyone crashes on that stretch you all will know why, because they “fixed “ it.
