Source: City of Santa Barbara
On Monday, May 9, 2022, Lash Construction Inc., will begin constructing the Downtown De La Vina Street Safe Crosswalks and Buffered Bike Lanes and the Eastside Community Paseos Project (Project). The Project will improve and provide critical bike and pedestrian connections within the Eastside and from Eastside to the Downtown area.
This Project will install a buffered bike lane, curb extensions, traffic diverters, landscape peninsulas, flashing beacons to facilitate safe crossings, 24 new pedestrian access ramps that will comply with Americans with Disabilities Act requirements, and high visibility marking and signs at specific locations to alert drivers where pedestrians frequently cross. Additionally, the project will include a new sidewalk along the west side of Alisos Street between Canon Perdido Street and Ortega Street in areas currently missing a sidewalk.
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 Project is anticipated to be completed in October 2022. Work will occur Monday through Friday between 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. For any questions please contact, Mathew Rojas, at MRojas@SantaBarbaraCA.gov or 805-564-5450.
The total project cost is approximately $4.3 million and is fully funded through an Active Transportation Program (ATP) grant.
