Highway 154 Road Work to Slow Traffic

Motorists Should Expect Up to 20-Minute Delay


A $1.5 million repaving project will begin on Wednesday, June 30, on a section of Highway 154 between Stagecoach Road and Highway 101.

According to a Caltrans spokesperson, work will take place overnight — 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. — from Sunday to Friday morning. Motorists can expect delays of up to 20 minutes, said the spokesperson, and there will be one-way traffic control present to aid movement through the area. All businesses and attractions in the Santa Ynez/Santa Barbara area will remain accessible via Highway 154, which will stay open at all times throughout construction.

The project is to be carried out by Granite Construction of Goleta, which expects it to be completed by the end of August.

For traffic updates on other state highways in Santa Barbara County, motorists can call Caltrans District 5 Public Affairs at (805) 549-3318 or visit the District 5 website.
