Construction to improve the City’s roadway system is underway. The City will be investing nearly $6 million to pave approximately 8.6 lane miles of roadways throughout the City, including paving roadway segments on Cathedral Oaks Road, Glen Annie Road, Calle Real, Hollister Avenue, and Kellogg Avenue. The initial work includes constructing new concrete access ramps and associated sidewalks in preparation for the upcoming roadway paving. Roadway paving work is anticipated to begin in January 2022 after all the concrete and preparatory work is complete. Construction of the entire project is expected to take approximately eight months.
City of Goleta Public Works Director Charlie Ebeling said, “Public Works received highly competitive bids for construction that will cover more miles of road improvements than originally expected. We are very fortunate to have a City Council and community that supported taking advantage of such great bids. We are excited to now be able to start construction on this large paving project that will construct nearly $6 million worth of paving work on several major roadways throughout the City.”
Maintaining and strengthening the City’s infrastructure is a top priority for the City as outlined in our Strategic Plan. The City will continue to look for ongoing sources of revenue to fix potholes, repair, and maintain local streets and roads, and improve traffic flow and safety.
