One Ramp Opens, Two More Close


In some good news–bad news highway-access information, Caltrans has announced that along the southbound 101, the off-ramp for Los Carneros Road will re-open on Tuesday, March 31. But as the Goleta drainage improvement project proceeds, ramps at Fairview Avenue will completely close through January 2016. The on-ramp for the northbound 101 at Fairview will be blocked beginning late Sunday night, March 29, and the southbound 101 Fairview exit off-ramp closes late-night Thursday, April 2. Caltrans states the $17 million project to improve culverts along Las Vegas and San Pedro creeks is 50 percent complete and should be done by the end of next year.
