Southbound 101 Los Carneros Ramps Closing for a Year


The southbound 101 on- and off-ramps at Los Carneros Road will close 2/17 through February 2015, as part of the City of Goleta’s project to replace the bridge that runs over the railroad tracks there; the material is outdated and requires a safety upgrade. Drivers will still be able to use the freeway overpass, but lanes in each direction will be reduced during the project, which upon completion will provide bike lanes, a sidewalk, and better traffic flow for the southbound on-ramp.
