SANTA BARBARA COUNTY – The northbound US Highway 101 on-ramp at Salinas Street will be closed for a four week period beginning Tuesday night, Dec. 27 at 9 pm. In addition, the No. 3 (right) lane of northbound US 101 will be closed from East Cabrillo Boulevard/Hot Springs Road to Salinas Street 24/7 for this same four week period.

The contractor for this $1 million project is Cal Portland of Santa Barbara. This project is expected to be completed in January 2017, weather permitting.
