Construction of Black Road Bridge at Orcutt Creek
Begins May 19, 2014
Construction begins May 19, 2014 to replace the bridge on Black Road located 1000' ft. North of State
Route 1 at Orcutt Creek. The new bridge is being constructed to meet current design standards for bridge
width, bridge railings, and metal beam guard railings.
Construction will be performed by R. Burke Construction Company. Work begins May 19, 2014, and is
scheduled to end December 2014 contingent on weather. Black Road will be closed and traffic will be
detoured around the project. Watch for detour signage.
This $2.1 million dollar project will be funded through a Federal Highway Bridge Program grant for $1.69
million. The remaining $410,000 will come from matching State Prop 1B, State Gas Taxes and Santa
Barbara County Measure A revenue.
