The Hitching Post in Casmalia
 

SPECIAL DRIVING INSTRUCTIONS (and for people who may be lost)

Due to bridge construction, Black Road is closed just north of Highway One.  If you are taking the 101, we suggest the best way to get around the problem is to take the Clark Avenue exit in Santa Maria. Go west on Clark until you reach Highway 1, turn right onto Highway 1. Go approximately 3 1/2miles and you will come to a 4-way stop. Turn left onto Black Road. Go another 3 1/2 miles and at the big yellow HITCHING POST sign and turn right. 

If you have been taking Betteravia Road to Black Road and hit the closure, turn around and go back. There will be a left hand turn to Black Road (easily missed) which will take you to Betteravia where you turn left (go west) and go to Brown Road. If you missed the left turn to Black Road, fear not, you will still end up at Betteravia where you can turn left. Turn left on Brown Road and pretty quickly you will come to Highway 1. Turn left (going southeast) until you get to Black Road. You are now on the other side of the closure! Turn right onto Black Road. Go another 3/12 miles and at the big yellow HITCHING POST sign and turn right.

The County has provide a somewhat convoluted map showing the construction, which we have attached here.
