UPDATE: Highway 101 Paving Begins September 13

Project Covers Santa Barbara To Goleta Santa Barbara County


A project to repave and repair 8.5 miles of Highway 101 from Milpas Street to just south of Patterson Avenue will begin on Monday night, September 13.

There will be lane/ramp closures Sunday night thru Friday morning during overnight hours from 8 pm to 6 am. Motorists can expect a delay not to exceed 15 minutes.

Caltrans will remove the top layer of pavement and repave it with asphalt using a Bonded Wearing Course, a tough material which will greatly improve the ride for motorists. It will provide better visibility in rainy conditions, 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 March 2011.

Caltrans reminds motorists that ‘we’re here to get you there.’
