The draft supplemental Environmental Impact Report for the suicide barrier project on the Cold Spring Canyon Bridge is now available.

The public can view the document here or at the Solvang, Montecito, Goleta, or Santa Barbara branch libraries, or the Caltrans District 5 office in San Luis Obispo.

The public can send their comments to Caltrans’s Matt Fowler, at 50 Higuera Street, San Luis Obispo, or via email at There will also be a public meeting on January 5 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. in the cafeteria of San Marcos High School during which Caltrans will accept comments.

In July, a superior court judge ordered that Caltrans vacate approval of the controversial project — designed to keep people from jumping from the popular suicide spot — decertify the final EIR, and recirculate a revised draft EIR for public comment.
