Construction of the Clark Avenue Safe Routes to School Sidewalk Improvements
Begins July 7, 2014
The County of Santa Barbara Board of Supervisors has awarded a contract for Clark Avenue Safe Routes to
School Sidewalk Improvements to G. Sosa Construction, Inc. for $182,000. A Federal Safe Routes to School
Program grant will fund the project.
The current walking path on the south side of Clark Avenue between Norris and SR135 is a narrow and
uneven dirt path. The Public Works Department conducted a study and found that pedestrian traffic is
steady both before and after school and students often walk in the roadway. The improvements will include
the installation of a retaining wall and sidewalk to improve walkability along this route. The Public Works
Department will inspect and administer the construction.
Work is scheduled to begin on Monday, July 7, 2014, and be completed by mid-August. Construction hours
will be 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Drivers should be aware of reduced speed zones and
increased traffic control when driving through the construction site.

Public Works Department officials wish to thank local residents, businesses, cyclists, pedestrians and the
traveling public for their patience and cooperation during construction.
