Cacique Bicycle and Pedestrian Bridge


Big Money Approved for Montecito-Yanonali Bridge


The City Council approved spending $650,000 to trigger $3.4 million in state and federal matching funds to build a new Montecito-Yanonali Street bridge over Sycamore Creek. The existing bridge has long been a sore spot for Eastside residents, replete with kamikaze curves and anorexic footpaths. The new bridge will provide far more space and separation for pedestrians and cyclists, as well as automobiles. In addition, the project will fund two blocks’ worth of new sidewalks along Salinas Street
