The California Transportation Commission voted this week to allocate $60 million in state funds to, among other things, widen the 101 freeway bridge over Carpinteria Creek to accommodate the widening project underneath it. In addition, the 101 freeway bridges at Linden Avenue and Casitas Pass Road in Carpinteria will be widened. The project also calls for two Class I bike paths: one along the Carpinteria Creek under the freeway and the other from Rincon Point to Carpinteria Avenue. The latter is not yet funded. Construction for the four-year project is slated to begin this summer.
