101 Repair Begins Sunday Evening

Paving Project From Santa Barbara To Goleta Enters Repair Phase


Caltrans has completed the repair phase of 8.5 miles of Highway 101 from Milpas Street to Patterson Avenue and will begin work to repave all traffic lanes with asphalt which includes a Bonded Wearing Course.

This paving operation will take place on southbound Hwy. 101 near Patterson Avenue Sunday night through Friday morning during the overnight hours from 8 pm to 6 am beginning, Sunday Nov. 7 through Wednesday, Nov 23. There will be no work scheduled Thursday, Nov. 11 and Friday, Nov. 12.

This asphalt will improve conditions for motorists, provide better visibility in rainy conditions and reduce back splash and tire spray.

The contractor for this $5.5 million project is George Reed Inc. of Modesto, CA.

This project is expected to be completed in spring of 2011, weather permitting.
