Traffic Signal Installation Begins at Fairview Avenue and Berkeley Road

Work is set to begin this Thursday, February 3rd , on the new traffic signal at the corner of Fairview Avenue and Berkeley Road. Mayor Margaret Connell said, “We are very excited to be able to make this intersection a safer place with the installation of a traffic signal. This area involves a lot of vehicle traffic, pedestrians and bicycle traffic. With the library and several schools nearby, and as part of the Goleta north bike route, we are glad to make this a safer place to travel.” It has long been a goal of the City of Goleta to install a traffic signal in this area and the City received funding through a State and Local Partnership Grant which splits the cost of the construction between the City and the State. As the changes are being made, drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists are encouraged to be particularly cautious and aware of each other and the workers. An inspector will be on site to handle any issues or concerns. Work is expected to continue through the end of March. For any questions or comments, call 805-961-7510.
