STATE ROUTE 154/246 ROUNDABOUT PROJECT TRAFFIC SWITCH
SANTA BARBARA COUNTY - A project to construct a roundabout and improve safety at State Routes 154
and 246 near Santa Ynez will result in a temporary traffic switch beginning Wednesday, April 9, weather
permitting. This road work was scheduled to begin earlier this week but has been postponed due to wet
conditions as a result of rain in the area.
· Motorists traveling in both directions of State Route's 154 and 246 will continue to drive through the
partially completed roundabout which remains fully open without a detour. The speed limit will be 25 mph
and includes a three-way stop. Motorists and bicyclists are encouraged to share the road.
· Armour Ranch Road will be closed during this phase of the project. Local residents may detour onto
Happy Canyon Road and proceed to State Route 154 near Edison Street. This detour is expected to be in
effect until August.
The contractor for this $3.3 million dollar project is Granite Construction of Watsonville, CA. This project is
expected to be completed in October of 2014.
Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through highway work zones.
