The Cathedral Oaks Road Settlement Repair Project is scheduled to begin construction on Tuesday, January 5th, 2021. The project will provide a smoother ride for those traveling on Cathedral Oaks Road between Glen Annie Road and Los Carneros Road by repairing the “dip” in the roadway that occurs about 0.5 miles west of the Cathedral Oaks and Los Carneros intersection. The project is expected to take approximately two weeks to complete.

The Director of Public Works Charlie Ebeling said, “The Department of Public Works is excited to address the dip on Cathedral Oaks Road. The repair method is based on a thorough geotechnical investigation that ultimately showed that a relatively inexpensive method of leveling the roadway could be used. The repair method will also have far less impacts on roadway users by shortening the construction duration. We appreciate your patience during the construction period.” 

The work consists of injecting material treatment beneath the roadway to repair the “dip” and bring the roadway elevations back to level grade. This project does not include roadway asphalt surface repairs at this time. The roadway surface repairs will be included in a future paving project after confirmation that roadway settling has been resolved.

The City awarded the project to Uretek USA Inc., and MNS Engineers, Inc. will be providing construction oversight for the City. City staff will be working with the contractor to minimize impacts to the public, however traffic control and flaggers will be needed during construction in order to complete the work.

If you have any questions, or would like additional information, please contact City Construction Manager Julie Jang at [email protected] or at 805-690-5121.

Interesting way to fix the road. I have had a foundation leveled using a similar technique. Hope they don't make a bump out of a dip.

"This project does not include roadway asphalt surface repairs at this time.

I sincerely hope that the repaving project is already planned and funded, only awaiting confirmation of this repair. That stretch of CO is a mess, and we have already discussed the dangerous actions both motorists and cyclists are currently taking to avoid broken up pavement. We don't want to have another fatality due to Goleta dragging its feet on getting this work done.

I think I know the exact dip. Our classic truck has rough suspension and if we go the speed limit we'll definitely feel it so we need to slow down at that part, especially when heavily loaded. I would love to see the whole stretch repaved since I'm sure it's similar for others.

I was beginning to think Goleta stopped maintaining its streets, but I was pleasantly surprised with all the paving they did on Los Carneros and Hollister in December. Hopefully there is more to come.

City of Goleta employees have been using asphalt patch to fill cracks and holes on CO for a long time. They use one bag at a time, flattened by hand with a shovel. The guy doesn't even block traffic, just runs out between traffic to do a quick patch. Just like a third world country. Sheesh, fix the darn road.

Let's hope they don't take the Modoc project approach where the 1st thing they do is destroy all of the intersections along the road and cut down the major intersection (with Las Positas) to one lane. Then spend months pouring curbs and spreading gravel while everyone in the neighborhood has to endure an off road experience when the want to leave while driving. Clearly whoever planned that project doesn't live or travel in that area.

Now, if only CalTrans could fix the (fun) dip on the southbound 101 before the 154 overpass. But it probably won’t get fixed until someone dies there.

The whole area btw Los Caneros and Storke should be repaved while school traffic down. It's one of 3 main though routes and heavily traveled when DPHS is in session and there are many new housing units beyond, so lots of commuters. BTW, the golf course is planning to make an exit to C.O. adjacent to the high school. With or without an additional traffic light, anyone can see how that will go with new driver and commuter cross traffic.

Where did you hear that? I cant think of where they have room to make a exit to Cathedral Oaks without cutting through the course.
