Goleta Gets $3.6 Million for Bike Path Projects

The City of Goleta last week received a $3.6 million boost for two bike-path projects planned for 2015. Two grants from the state’s Active Transportation Program (ATP) will be put toward installing a bike path along Pacific Oaks Drive en route to Ellwood School ​— ​a project slated for completion next summer ​— ​and building bike lanes and sidewalks for the Ekwill Street and Fowler Road Extensions Project, which will commence construction at the end of next year. The city’s applications were in a total pool of 772 competitors vying for $1 billion in awards.
