Santa_Maria_WestCoastKustoms_Cruisin_Nationals_2013_Gallery_featureSouth Broadway (Highway 135) between Stowell Road and Cook Street in Santa Maria will be temporarily closed to traffic from 6:15 to 9:00 p.m. Friday, May 27th for the 34th Annual West Coast Kustoms Cruisin’ Nationals. Stowell and Cook will remain open with traffic control.

During Friday night’s cruise, Santa Maria Police Officers will be on-scene for general traffic enforcement. Officers also will be on the lookout for reckless driving, street racing and anyone driving under the influence; that patrol funding is provided by the State Office of Traffic Safety.

To kick off the Memorial Day Weekend, the West Coast Kustoms Car Club will hold its City Cruise on Broadway with hundreds of cars. Thousands of residents are again anticipated to line Broadway to view the classic and beautifully detailed ‘50s and ‘60s automobiles and street rods in a rainbow of purple, gray, red, green, black and blue, and lots of chrome and special lighting. The car cruise is followed by a two-day car show at the Santa Maria Fairpark.

Traffic enforcement questions may be directed to the Santa Maria Police Department.
