LONG TERM CLOSURE OF NORTHBOUND U.S. HIGHWAY 101 ONRAMP AT FAIRVIEW AVENUE BEGINS
MONDAY NIGHT, JUNE 16
GOLETA - The northbound on-ramp to U.S. Highway 101 at Fairview Avenue will be closed for the next 6 to
9 months beginning late Monday night, June 16.
Motorists can expect delays in this area and should allow extra time for any trips in the vicinity of this
project. Electronic message boards will be activated to assist motorists in moving around the project area.
This ramp closure is part of 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.
This project will also prevent flooding north of Calle Real and U.S. Highway 101. It will also include
reconstruction of 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 and 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
Avenue or State Route 217 to access businesses, the Santa Barbara Regional Airport and UCSB. For more

All local businesses in the Fairview Shopping Center will remain open for business.
Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through highway construction zones.
