GOLETA – A project to improve the capacity of two large drainage culverts located along Las Vegas Creek and San Pedro Creek at U.S. Highway 101 near Fairview Avenue in Goleta will result in the following ramp closure next week:

· The southbound off-ramp of U.S. Highway 101 at Fairview Avenue will be closed during overnight hours on Monday, April 14 through Thursday morning, April 17 from 10 pm until 6 am. This ramp closure will allow roadwork to proceed on widening the shoulder at this location.

This project will increase the water capacity and prevent flooding north of Calle Real and U.S. Highway 101. It will also include reconstructing the U.S. 101 southbound off-ramp at Fairview Avenue. Caltrans is the lead agency for this project, in partnership with the Santa Barbara County Flood Control District with support from the City of Goleta.

The contractor for this $16.6 million project is Flatiron West Incorporated of San Marcos, CA. This project is expected to be completed in 2017.

As part of the City of Goleta’s Los Carneros Overhead Bridge Replacement project, the southbound Hwy. 101 on/off ramps at Los Carneros Road remain closed until February 2015.

Motorists can use Patterson Road or State Route 217 to access businesses, the Santa Barbara Regional Airport and UCSB. For more information on this project, visit: http://www.loscarnerosbridgeproject.com/
