Paving Project From Santa Barbara To Goleta Underway

Highway 101 from Milpas Street to just south of Patterson Avenue begins


A project to repave and repair 8.5 miles of Highway 101 from Milpas Street to just south of Patterson Avenue is now underway.

There will be lane/ramp closures Sunday night through Friday morning during the 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 which will greatly improve the ride for motorists. It will provide better visibility in rainy weather, 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.

For traffic updates on other state highway projects in Santa Barbara County, motorists can call Caltrans District 5 Public Affairs at 805-568-0858 or visit the District 5 website.
