Update by the City of Santa Barbara
February 26, 2019

 

A portion of Alameda Padre Serra was closed on February 3, after a sinkhole on the westbound lane appeared. A clogged culvert had led to pavement erosion. In an emergency repair, crews excavated the road, unplugged and replaced the culvert, and repaved the surface. The road reopened on February 22.

Alameda Padre Serra is closed near Arguello Road in Santa Barbara. Heavy rains over the weekend caused a drainage structure underneath Alameda Padre Serra to fail, which has resulted in a sinkhole in the roadway. Due to the depth of the drainage structure, a schedule for reopening Alameda Padre Serra has not been established.

City engineers and maintenance staff are working to determine a repair and will reopen the road as soon as possible.
 
Drivers are encouraged to avoid the area. The safest and most efficient way to bypass the area is on Highway 192 or on streets closer to downtown Santa Barbara.

As of Tuesday the two roadblocks on APS were @ Moreno and Dover. The detour takes you along Dover/Paterna/Lasuen. Haven't checked this morning yet.
