Amgen Tour of California Road Closure Information

From May 11-18, 2014, California will again host The Amgen Tour of California, America’s largest and most prestigious professional cycling race.

Stage 5 will finish in Santa Barbara on May 15th. The route begins at the intersection of Modoc Road and Via Senda and ends at the intersection of Cabrillo Boulevard and Calle Cesar Chavez. The race moves at 25-30 mph so it should pass by any given point in about 5 minutes. The entire race caravan is approximately two miles in length. The California Highway Patrol will accompany the race and the Santa Barbara Police Department will facilitate road closures along the route within the City of Santa Barbara. Every effort will be made to minimize the impact on residents, businesses, and traffic. The Finish Festival will take place on Cabrillo Boulevard between Garden Street and Calle Cesar Chavez from 11:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The following road closures may impact your personal or business travel. Please plan accordingly.

· Cliff Drive
· Meigs Road
· Shoreline Drive

Additional Information for Residents and Business Owners: Oncoming traffic will be stopped approximately 15 minutes before the race. Traffic going in the same direction as the race will be allowed until the race approaches. All driveways exiting onto the course will be closed as the race passes. Traffic will be allowed to cross the course until the race is approaching. Emergency vehicles will not be affected by road closures.
