Source: City of Santa Barbara
On Monday, September 14, C.A. Rasmussen, Inc., will begin constructing a 2.6 mile long, multiuse path for bicyclists, runners, and pedestrians separated from high-speed vehicle traffic along Las Positas and Modoc Roads. This Vision Zero project will start construction at Calle de los Amigos along Modoc Road and work towards Las Positas Road and down to the roundabout at Cliff Drive. The project will connect the beach, schools, parks, and commercial centers with the community along the Pacific Coastal and Crosstown Bike Routes.
Traffic control and temporary delays should be expected. Access will be maintained for residents, although temporary disruptions should be anticipated while construction is taking place. The entire project will be constructed in phases and will last approximately 18 months. Work will occur Monday through Friday between 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
The project is funded primarily through Active Transportation Program grant funds in addition to local Measure C funds for local matching costs. Click here to subscribe and stay informed on updates regarding this transformative project.
